EPIC requires an Approved structural inspection when new applicants and existing insureds request Sinkhole Loss Coverage for a risk location in the following counties:

Alachua

Broward

Citrus

Dade

Hamilton

Hernando

Hillsborough

Lake

Manatee

Marion

Pasco

Pinellas

Polk

Seminole

Sumter

Suwannee

Wakulla

Washington

The structural inspection must be completed no more than 45 days prior to submission of the application or request to add coverage by an Approved inspection service. An approved inspection service is one that has been designated by EPIC as competent to perform the evaluation, and whose report format meets our informational requirements. The applicant will contract directly with the Approved inspection service, and pay an arranged fee we have negotiated with the inspection service. This negotiated fee is $140 and the applicant is responsible for one half of that fee ($70). The fee will not be refundable even if the request for the sinkhole loss coverage is not approved. Both parties will receive a copy of the completed inspection.

An inspection from an inspection service that has not been designated by us as “Approved” may be submitted by the applicant for consideration in meeting this requirement. Such an inspection must have been completed by a professional engineer, professional geologist, or other individual or entity recognized by us as possessing the necessary qualifications to properly complete the inspection, and must meet all of the requirements outlined with regard to timing, content and format.
