Solution Value: $75,000
NFE Solution: Letter of Map Amendment
What happens when your property gets mapped into a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA)? Typically, the lender will require flood insurance if there is a loan on the property, and that added expense is never a welcome surprise to property owners!
After being newly mapped into an SFHA, their lender alerted a Chicago property that they had 45 days to place flood, total replacement cost, and business income insurance. Quotes were coming back at nearly $75,000/year. Talk about sticker shock!
