Protect Your Possessions in Case of a Flood

Floods are the nation’s most common and costly natural disaster. Floods can happen anywhere, with more than 20% occurring in areas outside of high-risk zones. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), recovering from just one inch of water inside your building can cost approximately $27,000.

Private flood insurance is a widely accepted alternative to purchasing a flood policy backed by FEMA under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Private flood policies offer the same coverage as FEMA’s NFIP policy, and in many cases have lower rates than the NFIP.

Safehold Special Risk can help you evaluate your flood risk and determine whether the NFIP or a private flood policy is most appropriate for your needs. Our private flood policy is accepted by lenders nationwide in satisfaction of lender requirements.

Safehold’s expertise helps businesses and families protect their possessions during and after a flood event. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help protect clients from the devastation of flooding.
