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.
The elevation certificate remains valid as long as the building and ground measurements remain unchanged.
Your old Elevation Certificate will still be valid. Insurance Agents and local government officials will be able to convert the measurements on your certificate to relevant elevations on the new flood maps.
FEMA released the updated Elevation Certificate form on Friday, July 7, 2023. There is no grace period for the old form. Any form signed and dated as of July 7, 2023, must be on the latest FEMA EC Form. To obtain a copy of the form, please go here.
