We recently conducted a property survey in Shrewsbury, MA. This was an elevation survey for a homeowner who had been paying flood insurance for years. We performed the elevation survey and found that the home was not in a flood zone. The homeowner was understandably very happy. He can submit the elevation certificate to his insurance company which may help him to avoid playing flood insurance. He may even get money back for insurance he previously paid.
Soon after, many of his neighbors called us seeking elevation certificates in Shrewsbury. All in all, we completed five elevation surveys in Shrewsbury in the same neighborhood. All five elevation certificates placed the neighbors outside of the flood zone. This happens more frequently than you would think.
