Compliance Warnings

Warnings.png

To help you with compliance checking, we've added a series of warnings to our Property Info Panel. You'll find them at the top of the Panel, under the Google Street View image. The warnings are meant to notify you of discrepancies, map changes, or insurance requirements for properties in your jurisdiction. For properties with an EC on file, we'll also alert you to potential compliance issues (like LFEs below the BFE). The warnings are divided into three color-coded categories:
