Real estate E&O insurance
Coverage that's right up your street
Rent or buy? City or suburbs? Apartment block or studio flat? Just some of the many questions your clients will ask you.
You’re the professional, after all. So, when it comes to making their dream home a reality, your clients rely on your knowledge and skill.
But if you make a mistake – it happens – and your client’s dream turns into a nightmare, you can be sued for professional negligence. In fact, you can be sued even when you haven’t made a mistake.
Why do realtors need E&O insurance?
Faced with a claim, your professional reputation at stake, you’ll have to defend yourself.Lawsuits cost. A lot. And if you have to fund one yourself, it might not just be your reputation on the line, but your business, too.
Errors and omissions insurance takes care of these costs for you. Your coverage can get a lawyer to defend you, cover your legal costs and pay any damages you’re liable for.
A sound investment? We think so.
What does real estate E&O insurance cover?
- Mistakes and omissions – whether you made them, or not
- Claims against you – plus damages, if you’re liable
- Claims for work you’ve done in the past
- Claims made against you worldwide – but they must be filed in the United States, a U.S. territory or Canada
- Legal costs including hiring you a lawyer, if necessary
What other insurance do real estate agents need?
General liability insurance
If you visit clients or they come to your offices, you need this coverage. It protects you from claims made for injury or damage to property that’s your fault. Without it, you’ll have to find the money for medical bills and a legal defense, if you’re sued.
Business personal property insurance
This policy protects things like your IT equipment, furniture – even the potted plants – in your office. It also covers devices like tablets and cell phones you take with you when you’re out and about on business. As loss or damage to your own property is not covered by a general liability policy, it might be worth adding. Especially if you stop and work out how much items these things will cost to replace.
Cyber liability insurance
If you store client data electronically, use email and run a website, you’re a target for cybercriminals. While cyber insurance won’t stop an attack, it means you’ll survive one. Because it’s not the data breach that destroys most small businesses, it’s the cost of recovering from one. Your coverage can take care of these costs for you, restore your systems and – importantly – your reputation.
Workers’ compensation insurance
If you have employees, you need workers’ compensation insurance. It’s your protection against claims made by your employees for injury or illness as a result of working for you. In fact, in many states it’s a requirement. So best check before you decide to skip it.
But because small business insurance is our business, we know that every realtor’s insurance requirements are as unique as their agency.
We can make sure you get the package that’s right for you.
What’s even better is it will take only a minute or two.
