NOTICE TO VIEWERS
  • The video indicates that the Biggert-Waters Act revised the escrow requirements, however, the law has changed since the video was produced.  The Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act, enacted in March 2014, amended changes made by the Biggert-Waters Act to the escrow provisions of federal flood insurance law (i.e., banks and servicers will be required under the new law to escrow flood insurance premiums and fees for any loans made, increased, extended, renewed, or refinanced on or after January 1, 2016) and also provided a new exclusion for detached structures on residential property, and
  • The video indicates that the increase in the maximum insurance coverage for residential multi-family properties mandated by the Biggert-Waters Act is not yet effective.  However, since the video was produced, FEMA implemented the increase to the maximum flood insurance coverage for non-condominium residential multi-family buildings from $250,000 to $500,000, and FEMA indicated that the coverage is effective on June 1, 2014 (see FIL-28-2014).

The videos will be updated to incorporate these and any future legal or program changes
