Additional Details
Most residences in Special Flood Hazard Areas are already insured by flood insurance policies. If a bank or mortgage company forces a property owner to buy an additional insurance policy, the consumer is paying for a second policy which is valueless to the consumer, as the National Flood Insurance Program ("NFIP") will not pay twice for an insurable loss.
