Increased Fees for Sinkhole Inspections
September 11, 2018
Due to fee increases from Citizens’ third-party sinkhole inspectors, effective August 22, 2018, we have increased the fee for sinkhole inspections that are required to verify eligibility.
The inspection fees outlined below are split evenly between Citizens and the applicant. They are not refundable regardless of Citizens' underwriting decision.
Personal Residential Multiperil (PR-M)
The applicant must pay 50 percent of the $200 inspection fee.
