Cumulative Damage Building

Any building that has incurred flood-related damage as a result of two or more flooding events in which the cumulative amounts of payments equals or exceeds the fair market value of such building, as determined through use of the following procedure. To determine whether a building has been cumulatively damaged, a loss percentage will be calculated, for each loss, equal to the claim payment amount for that loss divided by the fair market value of such building on the day before each loss. If the sum of the loss percentages for more than one loss equals or exceeds 100%, then the property will be deemed a cumulative damage building.
