What is a membership fee and why do I have to pay this?

CRES established the Real Estate Services Council Risk Purchasing Group, LLC. (RESCRPG) under the Risk Retention Act of 1996, to allow us to offer comprehensive prepaid legal services as a part of your real estate errors and omissions insurance.

Under the RESCRPG, CRES offers a one-stop shop for coverage through Admitted insurance carriers at wholesale pricing. Because we only work with Admitted carriers, you won’t pay any additional taxes for coverage.

Under the RESCRPG, coverage is required to include Risk Management (legal advisory services), which we offer to all companies and individuals on all of our quotes. RESCRPG Membership is required by our carriers.
