How does the real estate E&O policy insure transactions done for relatives?

CRES real estate E&O + ClaimPrevent® covers transactions where you as the agent are involved in listing and selling residential properties owned by relatives, as part of the Agent-Owned Property coverage. Single family residences up to a fourplex are included in the coverage.

Many E&O companies do not cover these transactions.  If they do offer coverage, they may only cover Agent-Owned Properties that are your primary residence.
