FEMA Elevation Surveys Here in the Northwest many people do not consider flooding as a potential threat to homeownership. In fact there is always some risk to flooding any home or building. This is why FEMA has studied and developed special flood hazard areas to identify those areas more prone to flooding. All federally backed mortgages where a home is within a special flood hazard area are required to purchase flood insurance. Sometimes this insurance can be very expensive. The only way to clearly determine the potential risk and cost to purchase flood insurance is to survey the building. Without the survey we find most homeowners are over paying their insurance premiums because the insurance industry and lenders will assume the buildings are in a higher risk category. Most homeowners can save thousands of dollars in insurance premiums with a survey. Our surveyors are experts in helping homeowners navigate FEMA’s rules and regulations and can assist you in determining your buildings flood hazard risk an options to reduce those risks. If you are faced with staggering insurance premiums, give us a call and find out if we can be of assistance.
