Elevation Certificates

What Is An Elevation Certificate?

To record a building’s location, lowest point of elevation, flood zone and other characteristics, an elevation certificate would be necessary. An Elevation Certificate is used as a policy rating tool for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). An Elevation Certificate provides elevation information necessary to assess flood risk and ensure compliance with local floodplain regulations. An Elevation Certificate is the most accurate means of determining if a property is located in a floodplain.
