If you have owned the property through at least one re-appraisal, then you have been assessed with a dock. If you have not received a notice of code violation as result of the dock being present on your property; either the dock was permitted, or, it has been grandfathered in.

If the dock is in disrepair, you have a legal obligation to either remove it as a navigational and safety hazard, or, you are required to repair it to proper operational condition. Mitch's Law.
