Flood Search

A flood search is a determination of whether all or a portion of a designated property is located in a special or moderate flood hazard area (i.e., a 100 or 500 year flood zone) based upon the Flood Insurance Rate Maps issued by the FEMA for the sole purpose of complying with the Flood Disaster Protection Act. (Standard flood hazard searches and certifications are not intended as an opinion as to the likelihood of flooding for a particular property).

A Charles Jones flood search certification contains (and has for many years) all of the information required for compliance with federal regulations. Flood Searches are also performed for partial flooding areas to determine if a dwelling or other structure is located in a flood zone. This Dwelling Search can help provide answers when the entire property is not in a flood zone, since insurance is only required for dwellings and insurable improvements.

The company is a member of the National Flood Determination Association (NFDA), has over 30 years of experience performing these searches and currently maintains one of the region's largest inventories of map resources and data files.

Life-of-Loan Flood Monitoring

The National Flood Insurance Reform Act of 1994 requires that lenders must monitor loans to ensure that flood insurance is continued for the life of the loan and that changes in Flood Insurance Rate Maps be reflected in the requirement for insurance and the amount of premiums paid. To comply with this requirement, Charles Jones is pleased to provide an automated life-of-loan tracking service to identify properties affected by periodic changes in flood maps.

Patriot Name Search

The Charles Jones Patriot Name Search is a Certified Search of lists published by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of Treasury (“OFAC”), consisting of the "Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons", the “Foreign Sanctions Evaders”, and the comprehensive “Consolidated List”. Charles Jones offers this search as an option when ordering a Statewide Judgment Lien Search or through a separate Service Selection on our online order entry and retrieval system.

Effective September 24, 2001, Executive Order 13224 was issued (as amended by Order 13268, and 13608) and requires anyone conducting a financial transaction to determine if the person(s) with whom they are doing business are listed on the Blocked Persons list. The USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 requires similar checks and procedures. Later Executive Orders and sanctions have been imposed that require a check of other names that appear on OFAC’s “The Consolidated List” before transacting business.

The search also provides business general information on what to do if an individual name or entity appears on your results.
