What is Agent Owned Property coverage? Does it cover my own house or an investment property?

The Agent-­Owned Property (AOP) endorsement adds coverage when you want to be the listing agent
on the sale of your own, or a direct relative’s residential one to four­ unit property,

There are specific rules which must be met in order for the carrier to insure the sale of AOP:

  • A written home inspection report is issued by an ASHI, CREIA, NACHI, or NAHI member inspector
  • An approved home warranty is in place
  • All state required property transfer disclosure statements are properly completed, signed and delivered
  • The property in which the insured holds an interest consists of 1-4 residential units.

The coverage is a broadened coverage to the standard E&O policy coverage. Coverage is intended for selling your own properties.  Unlike other E&O companies that only offer coverage for your primary residence, CRES will cover other residential property where you hold an ownership interest.
