Letter of Map Change Assistance
Included at no extra fee for CenterPoint clientele is our Letter of Map Change (LOMC) assistance program. Flood Zone Determination Vendors, although approved and authorized by FEMA, do not have the authority to remove the flood insurance requirements from a property that has been identified as being in a 100 year Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) based solely on it’s elevation references.
FEMA has established a procedure to review structures and their relation to existing Special Flood Hazard Boundaries. This review procedure may allow the changing of the flood status and the removal of insurance requirements as applicable. The CenterPoint staff has assisted it’s clients with hundreds of Letters of Map Changes. This is just another customer service feature that sets us apart in the flood zone determination industry.
