July 2015 Flood Final Rule – If the detached structure exemption could apply, can we still require insurance?

Compliance > Lending > Flood > 2015 Flood Final Rule - Detached Exemption
Q:   If we have a situation where the detached structure exemption is available, may we still require flood insurance?
A:  Yes.  In situations where the statute does not require flood insurance for such structures, as a matter of safety and soundness, lenders may nevertheless require coverage on these detached structures, and that such coverage also may be in the borrower’s best interest.
