NFE Solution: LOMA; FES

Based on past successful projects and area data, NFE's in-house research team pre-qualified several of the Client's properties as having a high likelihood of cost-saving solutions. NFE contacted company leadership to share more information about our services and what we thought may be possible for their properties, and the Client was interested in exploring what solutions might be available.

For this Lebanon, OH, multifamily property with four buildings impacted by the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), NFE got to work immediately. NFE's engineering team performed the initial desktop review, which confirmed the high likelihood that the four A-Zone buildings would qualify for removal from the SFHA through a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA). Due to the complex and understudied nature of A-Zones and to fully confirm the solution, additional property-specific data was required. The Client agreed to have NFE perform a Flood Expert Survey (FES) of the property. NFE's in-house Field Experts visited the property and meticulously gathered all required data. After an exhaustive review of the new data, NFE's engineers qualified all four buildings for a LOMA.

Upon approval by FEMA, the LOMA removed the buildings from the SFHA and into an X Zone. With the LOMA in hand, the Client's lender released the mandate for flood insurance. As a result, the Client's flood insurance expenses decreased by more than $48,000 annually. This reduction improved the property's net operating income (NOI) and increased the property's value by approximately $814,000, assuming a 6% CAP Rate.
