Flood & Life of Loan Flood Searches
WTG produces Structure Based Flood Zone Determinations. They include aerial overlays of the flood zones so that you can see the location of the flood zone on the property and how it relates to all insurable structures. The overlays allow you to see exactly how and why your structure is affected. This removes any question as to how the determination was made by our analysts. Flood Determinations also includes Preliminary FEMA data when it is available. This data is sourced from revisions FEMA is making to regulatory map products. Since the data is not regulatory, it cannot be used to rate flood insurance policies at this time. It is provided so that homeowners and local officials can make the most informed decision using “potential” changes to guide them. Determinations from WTG are Certified and Insured for errors and omissions. We are staffed with Nationally Certified Floodplain Managers (CFMs) that can address all of your flood questions.
