E&O stands for Errors & Omissions, and is often referred to as professional liability insurance. Any mistake made in the process of conducting your business activity carries liability. If someone finds that you breached your duty or failed to disclose aspects of a real estate transaction, Errors & Omissions insurance is designed to cover the costs of defending yourself against any legal action, and paying any settlements or judgments that may be issued against you.
Errors and Omissions coverage can also protect you from frivolous lawsuits. Even if you did everything right, you can still incur significant legal fees defending yourself if you don’t have E&O coverage.
