Elevation Certificates

What Is an Elevation Certificate

An elevation certificate is a form created by FEMA for the purpose of acting as the official documentation of a building’s elevation. Elevation Certificates must be completed by a licensed surveyor in order to be considered legitimate. These certificates provide proof of compliance with floodplain management ordinances.

Why Do I Need an Elevation Certificate

Elevation certificates are important because they provide crucial information about a structure’s elevation in relation to the local floodplain. This information plays a critical role in determining a structure’s eligibility for flood insurance and can help inform decisions about flood mitigation efforts. Elevation certificates can also help ensure that a structure is properly protected from flooding and is in compliance with local building codes.

Elevation Certificate Process

In order to obtain an elevation certificate, a licensed land surveyor must come to measure and document the elevation of the structures on the property. Once the elevation is properly documented, the surveyor will present the property owner with an elevation certificate that will be acceptable to the necessary local government.
