Additionally, Pre-Pay in full for a two year policy guaranteeing no increase for the second year of the policy or Pre-Pay three years premium guaranteeing no increase for three years.

Underwriting information
Current cost to build new, not including land value How do I determine my replacement cost? The replacement cost of your home can be found on your homeowner's policy or an appraisal.
If contents coverage is not desired use $0
Primary Residence *
Is this residential building lived in by the owner for at least 250 days per year? This information effects both coverage at the time of a loss and the premium, so be sure to answer this question carefully. How does this effect my coverage? Only primary residence single family homes covered to at least 80% of the replacement cost at the time of the loss are paid Replacement Cost Value on building coverage (up to the coverage amount listed on the policy).
Contents coverage is always paid Actual Cash Value.
A non primary residence is always paid Actual Cash Value for building coverage.
Actual Cash Value (ACV)-The cost to replace an insured item of property at the time of loss, less the value of physical depreciation.
Replacement Cost Value (RCV)-The cost to replace property with the same kind of material and construction without deduction for depreciation.

This information can be found on: your present FEMA policy, a flood zone determination from your lender, an appraisal, or an elevation certificate. Your city or county building department may be able to provide you with this information as well. If flood insurance is required by a lender 99% of the time the flood zone will be an “A”. If the structure is within one mile of the Atlantic or Pacific Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico it is possible the flood zone will be a “V”. Our underwriters will verify the flood zone you enter when we receive your application and inform you if it is different than what you entered.

Acknowledgement of Potential loss of fema subsidy
In 2014, Congress enacted the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act, which authorizes the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) to make a lower cost flood insurance rating option (known as grandfathering) available to property owners who have participated in the NFIP by maintaining continuous, uninterrupted coverage through NFIP. If you intentionally allow your NFIP policy to lapse and later choose to repurchase a NFIP policy, it is possible that FEMA may apply the full risk rate -- and not the grandfathered lower cost rate -- for flood insurance for this property. Applicant hereby understands and acknowledges that if continuous coverage is not maintained with NFIP, then the subject property might no longer be eligible for a grandfathering discount, and the full risk rate may apply, if at some later date insurance applicant seeks to obtain coverage from the NFIP. *
acknowledgement of availability of coverage
Applicant attests that they are aware that personal property coverage of up to $250,000 is available and excess flood insurance over $250,000 is available and requires a separate application. *
Applicant attests that they are aware that flood insurance building coverage is available up to $500,000 and excess flood insurance over $500,000 is available and requires a separate application. *

Applicant attests that they are NOT aware of more than one flood loss within the past five years, unrepaired damage from a flood, a flood loss to the structure of $250,000 or greater, or that the property has been designated by FEMA as a Severe Repetitive Loss property. *
I understand that quoted premiums for properties with more than one flood loss within the past five years, properties with unrepaired damage from a flood, properties that incurred a flood loss to the structure of $250,000 or greater and any property that has been designated by FEMA as a Severe Repetitive Loss property are double those premiums quoted for properties without such losses and the policy, if issued, contains provisions for reduction and reformation of coverage if prior flood damage is discovered that has not been disclosed *
Ineligible properties
please answer yes if the following statement is TRUE and no if the following statement is FALSE.
Applicant attests that the building for which coverage is requested is NOT a Mobile Home, Condominium Unit, or Commercial Building. The building does NOT reside in an NFIP community under NFIP probation. The building is NOT located in a Coastal Barrier Resources System (CBRA zone) or an Otherwise Protected Area (OPA). NOR has the property been designated by a duly constituted State or local authority to be in violation of State or local floodplain management regulates (Section 1316). *
