FEMA Tells Flood Insurers to Curb Rate Hikes
Insurance companies are directed to stop charging full-risk premium rates on older properties sold after May 1, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) says in a bulletin last week. The bulletin is FEMA’s first directive implementing the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act, enacted last month to curb escalating flood insurance premiums. The bulletin directs insurers to allow home buyers to assume the seller’s premium rate until FEMA issues new rate tables and refunds excessive premiums as directed under the law.

Survey Seeks Info on Flood Rate Problems
NAR is surveying members  on whether they have clients experiencing implementation issues with the new flood insurance law. Click here to access: the survey, which is intended to help NAR determine the extent of problems in implementing provisions intended to curb rapid flood insurance premium increases.
