GeoSurvey provides elevation certificates for landowners to determine if their property is affected by special flood hazard areas identified by FEMA through their National Flood Insurance Program. These certificates are especially crucial for landowners when they are notified by their lender or other entities that they are required to carry flood insurance on their property.
Very often, our surveys identify that the subject property is not affected by the special flood hazard area, even though the FEMA flood insurance rate maps indicate otherwise. Our surveys and elevation certificates often enable property owners to escape having to carry expensive flood insurance on their property.
The FEMA website provides more information about elevation certificates here.
