Compliance > Lending > Flood > 2015 Flood Final Rule - Detached Exemption
Q:  With regard to the detached structure exemption, what is meant by part of a residential property?
 
A:  It means that it has some residential-related use and is not intended for structures which have a commercial, agricultural or other business use. 
 
The preamble to the final rule included this discussion:    “The Agencies have determined that “residential property” in the detached structure exemption should be similar to the HUD regulation’s definition in that it should apply only to structures for which there is a residential use and not to structures for which there is a commercial, agricultural, or other business use.”
