An Elevation Certificate is a form that is completed by a licensed land surveyor, listing detailed information about a structure’s elevation to see if the building is located above or below the base flood elevation (BFE) along that floodway. The BFE is the “100 year flood elevation“, or a flood which has a 1% chance of happening in any given year. The Elevation Certificate is used by insurance agents for the purpose of quoting your property for a flood insurance rate. An Elevation Certificate is also used to support a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) or a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR), which can remove your requirements to have flood insurance for your property.
