How to Obtain a Grant Deed

As part of any Letter of Map Change (LOMC) request, FEMA requires a copy of a property's recorded grant deed.

A grant deed should be part of every property owners real estate records. But if the document is not immediately available, a copy can be obtained from the County Recorder's Office.
