you can get the current owner to transfer his policy to your name and take up the note or prorate to him if it is paid up may save you some cash and time

wrong!!!! If you are closing on a new house you can get flood insurance effective immediately. Insurance agent for over 20 years and have done this hundreds of times.

As every one says - always true. You would not even have noticed had Dolly not been in the Gulf.
Unless you purchased in the Flood zone it should not be a problem, the big ones are later in the season.

Sandra that is true across the nation. That is done so everyone doesn't try and buy flood insurance two days before a hurricane hits.
