  • ClaimPrevent® Legal Services included 7 days a week — local expert real estate attorneys are on call to ask questions, prepare letters or addenda, review contracts, and more — to help you actually PREVENT claims.
  • $100,000 Open House and Showings Liability Coverage — you’re covered for damage and injuries to third parties, as well as from your real estate signage! (you really can’t do your job without this coverage, can you?)
  • $100,000 Pollution/Environmental Coverage — includes coverage for mold claims.
  • Conformity Endorsement Coverage — this amends your Montana E&O policy (for Montana residents) so that it also conforms to any E&O requirements in other states like Idaho where you hold a valid real estate license.
  • $1,000 retention (out-of-pocket claims expense) with First Dollar Defense — no out-of-pocket claims expense when your only claims cost is attorney fees.

PLUS, our Montana real estate E&O plans include:  no limit on attorney’s fees that will be paid for a claim, Firm and Franchise Coverage, and Prior Acts coverage for as long as you’ve maintained continuous real estate E&O insurance.
