Updated Dec 13, 2015 – Will be used for the upcoming year of 2016 with no changes!
The Office of Insurance Regulation (OIR) has revised and adopted form OIR B1-1801 “Uniform Mitigation Verification Inspection Form,” (Rev. 2/10). Use of this is required by Rule 69O-170.0155 of the Florida Administrative Code as amended effective 4/21/2010. This code covers collier and Lee county and Towns such as Marco Island, Naples, Bonita Springs, Estero and other home inspection areas
Mitigation verification inspections occurring on and after 4/21/2010 should be completed using only the new 1802 (Rev. 02/10) form. We request your assistance with ensuring that policyholders have access to the new form. For your convenience, we have attached the new form.
As the State makes strides in vetting the Wind Mitigation Inspection process, it is important to note that our agents play a critical role in that process. As we have noticed in the past, UPCIC has been receiving a significant number of mitigation discount forms with incorrect information or other concerns such as inconsistent signatures, unlicensed contractors or engineers, or alterations to the official Office of Insurance Regulation form. The utilization of this new 1802 form is an important first step in correcting these concerns.
We look forward to working with you in the future!
