Professional Liability Insurance for Real Estate Agents & Realtors

Businesses offering professional advice in the real estate industry are regarded as experts and are therefore often held to a higher standard. If something goes wrong or your clients become upset, you have the potential to be held accountable for costly damages, regardless of whether you have done anything wrong.

A Professional Liability insurance policy can help protect your real estate business in these instances. Also known as Errors and Omissions (E&O) insurance, this type of policy protects your business against claims of negligence, misrepresentations, or mistakes. Professional Liability claims are typically made by clients who allege some form of financial damage as a result of your services, products or employees.

Professional Liability insurance for real estate agents will pay your legal fees (up to the limits of liability) resulting from a related claim. This includes settlements and judgements, which alone could cost thousands of dollars. Without a policy, you would be responsible for paying these costs from your own pocket, which could easily lead to bankruptcy, business closure, or emptying your personal savings.

Claims do not have to be true to be financially devastating for real estate agents. Even a baseless claim and resulting lawsuit could lead to the negative outcomes listed above. They can also blemish your professional reputation. Professional Liability insurance for real estate agents will cover you even if the claim presented has no merit, so you can defend yourself and get back to work as soon as possible.

General Liability Insurance for Real Estate Agents & Realtors

General Liability is the most basic form of business insurance policy. This type of policy can protect you against any claim by an outside party regarding injury or damage to their property. In these instances, your policy will cover your legal expenses as well as your cost to replace or remedy the situation up to the limits of liability.

When real estate agents and realtors rent office space, they are often required by landlords to have a General Liability policy in place. Additionally, professionals who visit their clients’ premises may also be required to have a General Liability policy in effect.

General Liability may also cover advertising injury and personal injury claims related to the operation or advertising of your business. These can include claims of libel, slander, defamation, or copyright infringement. Real estate agents and realtors might consider seeking a General Liability policy that covers them for these types of claims, which are common in the field.

Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) for Real Estate Agents & Realtors

A Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) can protect professionals in your industry against a wide range of business-related risks. Any real estate agent or realtor who rents office space or own business property should consider purchasing this inclusive package.

A BOP is a convenient package of insurance that protects your business against the common risks it faces every day. The BOP product includes various coverages that may suit the unique requirements of your small business. Insurance included in a BOP can vary but usually they include protection for typical small business risks such as property damage, business interruption and liability.

A BOP is a convenient insurance package that shields small businesses against everyday risks they are likely to face. Insurance included in a BOP can vary but they typically include protection for common small business risks such as property damage, business interruption and liability.

Real estate agents and realtors can customize their BOP to include other forms of coverage that are relevant to their profession.

If you rent or own office equipment, you can also add coverage for your business equipment and property.

I have purchased General Liability Insurance for the past 4 years at BizInsure for my wedding videography small business. In these 4 years, it has always been a smooth process.There must've been some sort of technical issue (potentially due to my change in address), so my policy didn't auto-renew. I called Bizinsure and talked to Paulina, who was beyond helpful. She was very polite and explained things very well. One small detail that I can appreciate is that she often said my name, which shows that their customer service is intentional about personalized communication.In just a few minutes, we updated my account + renewed my insurance for a 5th year. I highly recommend Bizinsure!
