Situation #1
Lenders and Real Estate Agents

Informing real estate and lending professionals
When flood insurance requirements change, people planning to buy or sell property and the lending and real estate professionals who enable the transactions all need to be aware of what will be taking place and when. If not, property closings may be disrupted. Letting the local real estate association and its members know about pending levee de-accreditation and the map change process keeps them informed and enables them to educate potential homebuyers. You should also ensure that major lenders and flood determination companies serving your area are prepared for the changes.

Stay informed, stay compliant
The materials in this section will help real estate agents and lenders better understand and talk about flood risks and flood insurance. For more detailed information on levee de-accreditation and the map adoption process, browse the links in the Resources section.
