A ninety-minute webinar that provides an analysis of the requirements of the Flood Disaster Protection Act, select questions and answers issued by the regulatory agencies and the proposed rules issued by the federal regulatory agencies.
On October 24, 2014, five federal regulatory agencies announced the approval of a joint notice of proposed rulemaking to amend regulations pertaining to loans secured by property located in special flood hazard areas. The proposed rule would implement provisions of the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014 (HFIAA) relating to escrowing flood insurance payments and the exemption of certain detached structures from the mandatory flood insurance purchase requirement. HFIAA amends the escrow provisions of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 (the Biggert-Waters Act). The proposal also includes new and revised sample notice forms and
clauses concerning the escrow requirement and the option to escrow.
Regulatory agencies continue to assess civil monetary penalties against financial institutions for violations of the flood rules. There are many ways to violate the flood requirements: you could fail to properly complete the SFHD form or fail to complete it in a timely manner; fail to give the borrower the required flood hazard notice within the correct timeframe; or incorrectly calculate the amount of insurance required. These and other violations are continuing to serve as the basis for regulators to impose civil monetary penalties.
While civil monetary penalties will impact your bottom line, it is important to recognize that the reputation of your institution may be at risk as well, especially when your institution is in the headlines for not complying with the flood requirements.
