Does the E&O policy offer coverages customized to cover my Real Estate activities?

Be careful of “miscellaneous” E&O policies which can lead to potentially dangerous coverage gaps. General E&O or liability insurance companies or brokers may offer you their standard E&O policy.  But few other industries have lockboxes, leasing and property management, REOs and short sales, and other activities unique to real estate.  Make sure the company you choose offers E&O designed to address the risks specific to what you do every day.

CRES E&O policies are specifically designed to cover Real Estate transactions – with coverage for lockboxes, residential leasing and property management, REOs and Short Sales – as well as:

  • Pollution/Mold/Environmental
  • Fair Housing/Discrimination
  • Agent-Owned Property
  • Prior Acts coverage
  • Disciplinary Hearings
  • Subpoena Expenses
  • Data Breach Notification
  • Open House and Showings
  • Appraisals
  • Commercial Real Estate activities
