Where can I find floodplain or FEMA maps?
How do I know if my property/house is in the 100-year floodplain?
My lender says I have to purchase flood insurance because my house is in the floodplain (special flood hazard area), how can I prove that I am not in the floodplain?
If the house is shown to be within the floodplain on the FIRM, the only way to remove the flood insurance purchase requirement is to apply to FEMA for a letter of map amendment (LOMA). LOMAs require the property owner to submit elevation information that demonstrates the structure is above the 100-year flood elevation. The elevation certificate and the LOMA application can be downloaded from FEMA’s website.
If the house was constructed before the date of the FIRM, you must show that the lowest ground elevation next to the house is above the 100-year flood elevation. If the house was constructed after the date of the FIRM, you must demonstrat that the lowest ground elevation next to the house, and the lowest floor elevation (including basement) are above the 100-year flood elevation. If you have questions on the LOMA process, you can also call the FEMA’s toll-free help line at 1-877-336-2627.
