Flood Determinations

New Vista works with the leading national flood providers who have digital databases that contain the flood zone status of more than 150 million properties within the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Using this information, the flood providers return an average of 90 percent of flood zone determinations within seconds. If a determination is not an automatic hit, manual research orders are returned within 24 hours.

Basic Determination
Identifies the flood zone, community number, map and panel number, community participation information, insurance availability, map date and entry-date.

Life-Of-Loan Determination
This is a basic determination plus map change tracking with follow-up determinations for the life of the loan. If a map change or community status change occurs on the property, we will notify you of any change within sixty (60) days. Finally, life of loan service is fully transferable should the loan be sold or transferred.

Commercial Flood Determination
We provide Life of Loan determinations for commercial properties that include the community name and number, panel-suffix, map date, base flood elevation for the Flood Insurance Rate Maps and community participation status.

Census Information/HMDA
Provides the census tract, MSA (Metropolitan Statistical Area), state code and county code when requested.
