Have you been notified that you are required to carry flood insurance in the Charleston area? If so, you may have been asked to supply your insurance agent with an FEMA Elevation Certificate.
A Flood Elevation Certificate (EC) is a form that provides accurate elevation data for your home and structures. It can be used to get a flood insurance rate quote, or a reduced rate quote, or to remove the flood insurance requirement by supporting a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA). The EC is completed and certified by one of our licensed land surveyors or licensed civil engineers.
In most cases in order to prepare the Certificate, a field survey is required to provide accurate elevations of the structures. Our firm has performed this flood insurance survey throughout the Tri-County area numerous times. Our land surveyors and engineers have an efficient system to ensure quick and accurate results. If you are required to have flood insurance, or have questions about obtaining an EC, we are here to help.
