OCC Provides Guidance on Flood Insurance Issues Applicable

1. Under the current federal flood insurance regulations, a lender is prohibited from originating a loan secured by a building that is located in a special flood hazard area in a participating community unless the building (and contents) securing the loan is covered by flood insurance. If the collateral securing the loan includes more than one building, the lender is to determine the total amount of insurance required on each building and add the individual amounts together. The total amount of required flood insurance would then be the lesser of the outstanding principal balance of the loan, the maximum amount of insurance available under the National Flood Insurance Program for the type of buildings, or the combined insurable value of the buildings. The amount of total required flood insurance can be allocated among the buildings used to secure the loan in varying amounts; however, each building must have some coverage. Lenders are also directed to determine the reasonableness of the...

Flood Compliance: Exploring the Depths ABA Banking Journal

12.29.235

1. While funding for the National Flood Insurance Program itself is not generally a subject of debate, times of pervasive political polarity often have a largely unintended effect on the stability of the program. The authorization congress must provide in order for the program to function, has historically become attached to more contentious legislation, and this can result in lapses in the availability of flood insurance. In 2010, predicting whether or not the NFIP was going to be funded on any given day (and preparing for the case that it wouldn’t be), became a central focus for compliance officers. As of mid-May, 2018 has seen two short lapses in the program, and current political waves seem to indicate continuing choppy waters. The regulation itself does not anticipate a lapse in the program and provides no framework for how a bank should manage the mandatory purchase requirements during such a period. Guidance issued by the FDIC to bridge frequent lapses in 2010, clarifies that co...
