Elevation Certificates

Elevation certificates are now available in Mapnet.

FEMA's Flood Map Service Center has more detailed maps with information on jurisdiction for those not in the City of Charleston.

  • Select or search your parcel by address. If there is a matching Elevation Certificate in City records, it will be available as a download link at the bottom of the Property Information sections.
  • You may also select the layer "Elevation Certificates" from the "Additional Layers" dropdown in the left column to view all matching records on the map.
  • Not all Elevation Certificates are in City records and not all properties have an existing Elevation Certificate.
  • A new Elevation Certificate can be obtained at any time from a South Carolina licensed engineer or land surveyor.
    • Please note, the City of Charleston does not survey buildings for the purpose of completing elevation certificates. 

A list of all properties with an Elevation Certificate on file in City records is also available here (updated July 2020).
