Q: I have been told I need an elevation certificate for my home. What does this mean and how can I obtain one?
The elevation certificate can be an important part of determining the cost of flood insurance. However, many structures do not require an elevation certificate to be rated. To determine if a residence, business, or any other building requires an elevation certificate there are certain steps that must be followed.
Our land surveying staff can help you determine if an elevation certificate is needed for your home. If it is necessary to obtain the certificate for insurance purposes, we can assist in completing the elevation certificate. If after review we believe your residence is located outside of the flood hazard area, we can complete the necessary forms to have your structure removed from the hazard area through the eLOMA process.
