Are you covered under your firm’s real estate E&O policy? If you’re not, your family’s personal assets and your livelihood could be at risk should you be named in a real estate lawsuit, even a frivolous one. The average E&O lawsuit costs more than $40,000 — are you prepared to pay that out of your own pocket?
Even if you are covered under your firm’s policy, there can still be gaps, limitations, and exclusions — based on exactly what your firm’s particular E&O policy covers and doesn’t cover. Your firm’s policy was likely designed to benefit the firm, and you may find it doesn’t really adequately protect you.
Especially if you’ve changed real estate companies, your firm has been sold, or may have been remiss in making its E&O payments regularly, you may find yourself at risk.
