FEMA requires an Elevation Certificate for their National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). With this certificate, elevation information is provided for communities to ensure compliance with floodplain management ordinances. This is also used by property owners to determine insurance rates through the NFIP. In most cases, an Elevation Certificate is required for high-risk structures by an insurer before issuing flood insurance.
We know the importance of being prepared for natural disasters. South Carolina land owners are especially susceptible to the damaging impact of flooding. A FEMA Elevation Certificate not only determines a property’s risk of flooding, it provides peace of mind to the land owners. Be prepared and plan your structures and land development to prevent flood damage.
