Compliance Question of the Week

QUESTION: Following a flood map change, is a regulated lending institution required to force place flood insurance during the 45 days following the notice to the borrower, or can the institution wait 45 days after notifying the borrower?


The agencies’ regulations permit a lender or its servicer to force place flood insurance beginning on the date the borrower’s policy lapsed or did not provide sufficient coverage to ensure continuous flood coverage for both the institution and the borrower, and any time after that date.

However, if a borrower fails to obtain flood insurance within 45 days of the lender’s notification to the borrower of the need to obtain flood insurance, the lender must force place flood insurance at that time.
