Help NAR With Flood Insurance Rate Problems
At the May 22 ECAR Membership Breakfast, Austin Perez, NAR policy expert, told the audience that the best way to convince Congress to take another look at the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) rates and regulations was to show specific examples of how this is affecting real buyers and real homeowners.
NAR is making this easier for you! Use the form below to answer specific questions about how your customers are being affected by the rate increases.
When using this form, be as detailed as possible. Please provide supporting documentation if possible (for instance, the written flood insurance quote, elevation certificate, etc.). The more specific and well documented these property owner concerns, the more effective will be the REALTOR® response on their behalf.
Forms can be returned to Trey Goldman at Florida Realtors® by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax to 850-224-0702.
Austin Perez also made his contact information available for any members with questions or concerns about the changes to the NFIP. He can be reached at 202-383-1046 or email@example.com.
