An elevation certificate is a FEMA form used to certify the elevation of a structure in relation to the elevation of the 100-year flood zone. This form is used to determine flood insurance costs for an NFIP flood insurance policy. Some private carriers reference the elevation certificate but many do not require one.
A lot of people ask if Elevation Certificates are available through public records. They can often be found, for free through public records. If you need to purchase one a state-licensed professional such as a surveyor, engineer, or an architect will be required to determine the elevation of various property characteristics such as: the first-floor elevation, the elevation of a basement or crawlspace. What the Flood Insurance Rate Map does not measure an EC will.
Yes, 80% of the EC's we see have errors on them and that is why we require our certified professionals to go through a rigorours test for each EC before we approve it and allow it to be released to our clients. Getting an EC wrong can be the difference in thousands of dollars in premium or could effect ones eligibilty for a floodplain removal. If you want accuracy and high-quality service you can trust our nationwide network of certified professionals to get the job done right every time.
You do not necessarily need to get an EC if you are in a high-risk flood zone. Many of our private flood insurance carriers do not require an EC, and it is best to determine if you are eligible for these lower-cost flood insurance alternative before you go invest in an EC ($400-$1,500). If you are interested in getting your property removed fromthe floodplain you will need an EC to qualify. Alos, if you are not eligible for a preferred private carrier we would then advise you may need to get an EC. Contact our team to discuss the best stragety.
