IF YOUR STRUCTURE WAS CONSTRUCTED BEFORE 2016, WE DO NOT HAVE ONE ON RECORD. PLEASE REACH OUT TO LEE COUNTY RECORDS AS THE VILLAGE OF ESTERO DOES NOT HAVE ONE.

 The Village of Estero makes no warranty, representation or guarantee of any kind regarding either any certificates or other information provided herein or the sources of such elevation certificates or other information. The Village of Estero specifically disclaims all representations or warranties, express or implied, including, without limitation, the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.

The Village of Estero assumes no liability either for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies in the information regardless of the cause of such or for any decision made, action not taken by the user in reliance upon any certificates or information provided herein.

The elevation certificates are maintained by the Building Services Division. For a hard copy of the original, please contact the Floodplain Coordinator at 239-221-5036.

Since 2016, the Village of Estero, Building Services Division, has been collecting elevation certificates from builders, as a requirement of their building permit, and from owners of substantially damaged or improved structures.

If the home was built before 2016 and you have never substantially improved or experienced substantial damage to the structure, you may need to contact the Lee County to obtain permit information. If they do not have a copy, you may have to hire a surveyor, or you can ask the prior owner for the elevation certificate if they have it. Also, most lending institutions require both a property survey and an elevation certificate.
