Compliance Question of the Week

Question: Can a lender review current loans in its portfolio as flood insurance policies renew and determine that it would no longer require flood insurance on a detached structure in a flood zone if the structure does not provide contributory value?


A lender or its servicer could initiate such a review; however, the agencies’ regulations do not permit the exemption of structures from the mandatory flood insurance purchase requirement based solely on their contributory value. Flood insurance is not required, in the case of any residential property, on any structure that is a part of such property but is detached from the primary residential structure and does not serve as a residence. In addition, other exemptions could apply, such as the exemption for state-owned property covered under a policy of self-insurance satisfactory to the administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the exemption for property securing any loan with an original principal balance of $5,000 or less, or the exemption for a loan with a repayment term of one year or less.
