We are knowledgeable about real estate flood and property insurance
- Insurance companies
began to issue refunds for applicable policyholders beginning Oct. 1,
2014, and all checks should be sent before Dec. 31, 2014. The refunds will
go to homeowners that paid higher flood insurance rates before Congress
passed the Act.
The Grimm-Cassidy Substitute Amendment to the Homeowner Flood Insurance
Affordability Act (H.R. 3370) effectively lowers many flood insurance
premium rates. It reinstates grandfathered rates, repeals the home sale/new
policy rate increase trigger, provides refunds for people who bought
pre-FIRM subsidized homes without being informed of rate increases and caps
flood insurance rate increases, among other things.
Most flood insurance rates will still increase but at a slower rate than
before. Homebuyers already benefit from the Act. Effective May 1, people who
purchased new homes after Biggert-Waters became law, or who didn't have
insurance before that date or whose insurance lapsed, were required to pay
flood insurance premiums at the rate that was charged on Oct. 1, 2013.
