Blog Series: Elevation Certificates in Beverly, MA

For those seeking information regarding elevation certificates in Beverly, MA, the city website does have detailed information available online.  This includes links to the new FEMA flood maps along with details regarding the FEMA Flood Map Informational Meeting held in April.

It’s important for homeowners to know that FEMA’s flood maps are based on elevation s for whole areas and that a home’s specific elevations are not taken into account. For this reason it can pay to obtain an elevation survey by a qualified land surveyor.   Many homeowners find that despite being in an area known as a flood risk, their home’s actual elevations place them out of the flood zone. Other homeowners find that their structure remains in the flood zone but that they may benefit from reduced flood insurance rates based on their home’s actual elevations.
