For those landlords that unfortunately have flooded rentals, but no flood insurance, we have revised our previous blog post on Hurricane Harvey rental damage and applied it to those in Florida:

  • Look into Disaster Unemployment Assistance: If you are self-employed and you are not able to work or perform services because of physical damage or destruction as a result of Hurricane Irma, you may be eligible for federal Disaster Unemployment Assistance. Click here for more information. 
  • Consult a counselor for emotional guidance: The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration(SAMHSA) offers counseling and support to people experiencing emotional distress related to a natural disaster.
  • Refinance an undamaged rental home: You could refinance with Visio to take equity out of another property and repair your damaged property. For more information on our refi options, visit our Loan Programs.
