Elevation Certificates Arlington, VA
Elevation certificates are acquired by performing an elevation survey, a specific kind of land survey that is conducted for flood insurance purposes. When an elevation survey is performed by a land surveyor or engineer, an elevation certificate can be issued. Elevation certificates are used by insurance companies to determine flood insurance premium rates for a particular property. Our certified land surveyors in Arlington will be able to perform these surveys and provide you with an elevation certificate. Here is some more information about elevation surveys and their requirements. Because this document will be used by an insurance company to determine premium rates, there are very specific requirements that must be met by the surveyor performing the survey. An elevation certificate must be both signed and sealed by the land surveyor who performed the survey. Other people who are certified to sign and seal an elevation certificate include engineers and architects. Most elevation certificates are signed and sealed by surveyors who are licensed by the state where the property being surveyed is located.
