Roof and 4-Point Inspection Form Updates
February 09, 2018
Citizens updated the following forms to evaluate risks better and determine whether a property meets Citizens’ eligibility guidelines:
- 4-Point Inspection Form (Insp4pt 01 18)
- Roof Inspection Form (RCF-1 01 18), formerly Roof Condition Certification Form
- The Agents website: Select Personal → PR-M → General
- The Public website: Select Insurance → Get a Policy → Inspections
Agents and licensed inspectors should begin using the updated forms immediately. After September 1, 2018, if the agent submits a previous version of the form(s), Underwriting may request additional information or create other underwriting actions.

The changes on the 4-Point Inspection Form are outlined below.
- Each side of the dwelling

- Plumbing: Water heater, under cabinet plumbing/drains, exposed valves.
- The panel sections now require more specific information and whether the amperage is sufficient.

- Water heater location
- Inspectors must indicate the condition of the listed appliances.
Roof Inspection Form
