Flood Insurance Changes

An opportunity for lower-cost flood insurance for property owners whose buildings were newly mapped into a high-risk area from October 1, 2008, to April 1, 2015, will expire on March 31, 2016. Likewise, uninsured property owners for buildings in high-risk areas that were built in the County before August 19, 1985 may face higher rates starting April 1 if they have had a flood insurance policy for their building in the past and didn’t renew it. In either scenario, property owners need to have a policy effective by March 31 to maximize their savings. There is typically a 30-day waiting period, so that means they need to be paying for it no later than March 1st. Read more
