A Flood Elevation Certificate determines if existing structures might be subject to flooding and will be used by insurance companies and lenders to determine the proper flood insurance premium rate.
The Elevation Certificate (EC) will state how high your house is, the base elevation (FBE) and if your Real Estate property is located in a special flood zone.
The EC also supports a request for a FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) Letters of Map Amendment (LOMA) or FEMA Letter of Map Revision based on fill (LOMR-F) required to remove a property from the flood zone as established in the base flood map.
The Flood Certification provides elevation information necessary to ensure compliance with community floodplain management ordinances and the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
For construction purposes, with a FEMA Elevation Certificate, you can know if a structure was built correctly and protected from flooding with the use of proper design and materials.
The EC is used only to certify building elevations.
The FEMA Certificate is permanent unless there is an addition or alteration of the structure or changes to the insurance rate flood map.
What is a Flood Zone Determination.
A Flood Hazard Determination is a requirement from a mortgage lender who is underwriting a new loan or refinance, if a federally regulated bank, to know the flood zone that applies to your property.
If it is determined that your property is located in a high risk hazard zone, you are required to pay for a flood insurance rate to protect the collateral, the mortgage house.
The Letter is an official document, public record, that modifies a current National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) map, establishing the actual elevation of a property above the Base Elevation (BFE) in relation with the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA).
The Letter changes the flood insurance risk determination of a property that was inadvertently mapped in the floodplain.
