How does the Seller’s Protection Plan work? How do I get this for my clients?

Seller’s Protection Plan (SPP), also known as Seller’s E&O, gives your clients their own E&O policy for 180 days (and it can be extended an additional 180 days).

This is available on most CRES E&O policies, and with CRES Qualified Home Warranties in certain states, and will cover homes where you are the listing agent. The standard protection is $25,000, but the benefits can be combined, so in many states, coverage can reach $50,000. For example, as a CRES E&O client, you can give your seller $25,000 in Seller’s E&O coverage.  When you purchase a CRES Qualified Home Warranty for that seller, it comes with an additional $25,000 in Seller’s E&O.

There is a $2,500 retention (out-of-pocket claims expense limit) for the seller, and coverage is restricted to primary residences.  More about Seller’s E&O.
