If the Bank sends the 45-day, force-placement notice prior to expiration of the flood insurance policy, does it meet the statutory notice requirements?
No—the Bank is required to send notice upon determining that the flood insurance policy actually has lapsed in order to meet the statutory requirement. Any notice sent prior to lapse may be sent as a courtesy, but would not satisfy the statutory notice requirement.
