There are multiple buildings on my lot, do I need an Elevation Certificate for each building?

If you already have elevation certificates for each building (only one building can be on an Elevation Certificate) and they all qualify for a LOMA, then you can just submit a separate LOMA application for each building. If you don’t have Elevation Certificates for each building, then you can apply for a LOMA that reclassifies the entire lot as being in a different flood zone, which would include all structures on that lot. The key to filing such an application, is that instead of the Lowest Adjacent Grade needing to be higher than the flood level, the lowest point on the entire lot must be higher. You’ll need a land surveyor to complete a special Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Elevation Form.
