Notice to Lending Institutions, Real Estate Agents, and Insurance Agents
As a public service, the City of Oviedo will provide the following information upon request:
Whether a property is in or out of the Flood Hazard Area (FHA) as shown on the current Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) of the County.
Additional flood insurance data for a site, such as the FIRM zone and the base flood elevation or depth, if shown on the FIRM.
We have a handout on the flood insurance purchase requirement that can help people who need a mortgage or loan for a property in the SFHA.
The City of Oviedo maintains elevation certificates for new and substantially improved structures in the SFHA since January 1, 1987. The elevation certificates are stored at 1655 Evans Street, Oviedo, FL.
The City of Oviedo updates the Flood Insurance Rate Maps as needed when revisions are made to the maps.
The City also has information for additional FIRM information, problems not shown on the FIRM, flood depth data, special flood related hazards, historical flood information, and natural floodplain functions.
If you would like to make an inquiry, need a copy of an elevation certificate, or require a letter as verification, please provide the street address and, if available, the subdivision, lot and block number. Please e-mail Amanda Kortus or call 407-971-5682.
