All lenders, borrowers and servicers are required to insure every mortgage loan that lies within a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) with flood insurance. Financial institutions are regulated and subject to audit to ensure compliance.
The lack of flood insurance on a mortgage loan can not only be devastating for a lender or servicer should a flood occur, but it is also a violation of government policy, which can result in severe penalties and fines.
Constructing the right flood insurance coverage for your loan portfolio can be a complicated and difficult task. There are many policy options to choose from that impact not only the cost of the policies, but also the coverage that protects you from situations that can arise over the life of a loan. The IL Group can find the right lender-placed flood insurance for your real estate portfolio.
