Repairs to Substantially Damaged Structures
If your home or business incurred damage, the Construction Department will need to determine if your structure has been substantially damaged. Substantially damaged means the cost to make your necessary repairs will meet or exceed 50% of the value of the structure. In Lavallette, we use the assessed value to make that determination.
If you structure is substantially damaged, you may qualify for additional insurance money through the FEMA Increased Cost of Compliance Program (ICC).
A form is attached for your reference and will need to be completed and submitted to the Construction Code Official in order for him to make the determination. Substantial Damage Form
Caution should be exercised when submitting this form. If a determination is made that your property did sustain substantial damage (50% or more) you will be required, along with the other needed repairs, to raise the structure in compliance with the Borough’s flood hazard ordinance.
