Saving on Flood Insurance Cost

It is our hope that we can help you to drop your Flood Insurance cost by enough to justify our nominal charge.  
Some structures do not meet the various criteria on any of the paths which could lead to a lower, or zero, cost for
flood insurance.  Some of the paths lead to lower cost for the same or “modified” coverage.  
Others lead to no flood insurance coverage
requirement at no cost.  These are the real winners right up until the
flood water rises and they have no coverage.   Removing the requirement does not necessarily mean dropping any
coverage, as a matter of fact, the Preferred Risk Policy contains not only the Building coverage which your lender
will insist on, but it also includes some Contents coverage which will be of interest to flood victims when it is time to
replace beds, clothes and other possessions.

We get paid when we win for you.   We have enough experience to quickly determine when your
probability of success is too low for us to continue, thus minimizing our investment unless you are going to want to
pay us.

If you are almost convinced, please start by emailing us a n
ote with the location of your home.  If you think it might
too good to be true, think of this:  In one case you pay us when a document certified by a California
Licensed Land Surveyor convinces a California Licensed Insurance Agent to give you a better rate because your
structure is at a Federally defined lower risk.  In another case you pay us when a California Licensed Land
Surveyor convinces the Federal Government to change
the flood zone of your house.  In another case a California
Licensed Land Surveyor convinces a California Licensed Insurance Agent to give you a better rate because your
structure was built according to the then current Federally defined rules.  No refunds come out of our pocket: the
National Flood Insurance Program gives back the money you should not have paid according to their rules.
