Florida Flood Insurance - Broward County Area
Even though flood insurance is relatively inexpensive, most homeowners
do not choose to purchase the insurance protection available. According
to the Federal Insurance Administration, less than one-quarter of the
homes in areas most vulnerable are insured against flood loss. In those
areas, flooding is 24 times more likely to occur than a fire during the
course of a typical 30 year mortgage.
A standard homeowners insurance policy will not cover damages caused
by flooding. You must have flood insurance from an insurer that writes for
the National Flood Insurance Program. If your community participates in a
floodplain management program, you should be eligible to buy the coverage
no matter if your flood risk is low, medium or high. Residents of "coastal
barrier areas" and communities that do not participate in floodplain
management programs may have trouble finding flood insurance coverage.
Florida flood insurance is also available to renters, condominium
owners, and co-op owners.

Flood Perils Include:
Outside of fire, flooding is the most widespread natural disaster. According
to the National Flood Insurance Program, two adjacent properties have to
be under water to call the situation a flood. In a rural area, at least 2 acres
must be submerged.
The two primary types of Florida Flood Insurance Policies are listed below.
Actual Cash Value Policy
The value of property as figured by determining the cost to replace the damaged or
destroyed property and adjusting the replacement value by subtracting an amount
that reflects depreciation. Or in other words, replacement cost minus
depreciation. Homeowners are entitled to a replacement cost value if they live in
their homes at least 80% of the time and have flood insurance coverage for at least
80% of their home's market value.
Commercial and apartment buildings will be covered only for actual cash value.
Replacement Value Policy
The amount it costs to replace or rebuild a damaged property. Replacement cost
coverage is available only for the building portion of a condominium insurance
policy. Owners of single-family homes may be able to buy replacement cost
coverage on the building portions of their flood insurance policies. A Florida flood
insurance replacement value policy will pay only the replacement value up to the
coverage limit. For example, if rebuilding your home will cost $400,000, but you
only purchased $300,000 in coverage, your insurance policy will pay you only
$300,000.
