Changes to Flood Insurance Rates

In July of 2012, Congress passed the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act. The act, in addition to extending the national flood insurance program, defunded a subsidy program wthat had kept national flood insurance rates artificially low.

Changes to flood insurance rates are already being seen throughout the country. Some high flood exposure areas through the US have seen rate hikes as high as 10 times year over year.

In this week’s episode of Mortgage Monday, we discuss changes to flood insurance rates and their impact on New York homeowners.
