Accurate flood zone determinations protect your business, your clients and your investments. Since not all homes lie clearly inside or outside a flood zone, FIS Flood uses a unique multi-pass system that produces determinations to the insurable structure. FIS Flood delivers more than 99% accuracy by targeting the insurable structure, not the property's boundary lines.
FIS Flood hand-maps properties close to flood zones and uses aerial photographs and surveys, when necessary for verification, rather than automatically using default zones.
Full life-of-loan service keeps lenders in compliance by tracking for FEMA map or community status changes, providing reports and reprocessing if needed to provide an updated zone determination. The coverage is fully transferable should you sell or transfer servicing.
Home Mortgage Disclosure Act services assure total solutions for all your HMDA data. These same accurate geographic elements are available through batch processing of loan applications or depository files. FIS Flood can provide complete HMDA geographic elements in HUD-required format, which include codes for state, county, Metropolitan Statistical Area, census tract, and/or Block Numbering Area. These elements can be included with your flood zone determinations or delivered through processing programs scheduled to meet your individual needs.
