Do Elevation Certificates expire?

No.  However, if conditions at the building have changed or if a certificate is very old, some lending institutions may require you obtain a newer version. 

While there’s an expiration date on the certificate, that’s an expiration date for the blank version of the form, not the completed certificate.  

Note: Often, a new version of this form isn’t available before the old version expires, so the older version is extended. So don’t be concerned, if the date your certificate was completed was after the form’s expiration date.
