What Is Real Estate Errors and Omissions Insurance?

Real Estate Errors and Omissions Insurance (E&O) is a line of coverage designed to protect businesses that specialize in real estate. It mostly covers real estate agents and brokers, however it can be extended to cover landlords and a few other classifications. Just as any normal E&O policy will do, a Real Estate E&O policy protects the insured against any mistakes due to negligence or breach of contract made while doing business. The coverages are tailored for this specific line of work.

A Real Estate E&O policy can cover costs for legal defense as well as settlements for negligence and breach of contract. Hiring a lawyer or reaching a settlement out of court can cost a business a lot of money. Many small agencies do not have the ability to pay for these costs on their own. Even proving non-negligence in court can have huge costs. For example, a home inspector is hired to check a house before a couple purchases it. This inspector informs the couple about minor structural damage that should be taken care of, but it does not need to be fixed right away. A week later, that portion of the house collapses. The couple sues the home inspector for negligence. Without a real estate E&O policy the inspector would have to pay to settle or to hire a lawyer, which could potentially ruin his business. But with the right coverage the risk of negligence can be protected.
