Idaho Real Estate E&O Insurance
Idaho Real Estate Errors & Omissions (E&O) Insurance
Whether you are the owner of a property management firm in Boise, manage a luxury real estate agency in Idaho Falls, specialize in commercial real estate in Nampa, or are the CEO of a large residential real estate brokerage in Pocatello, a high-quality errors and omissions (E&O) insurance policy is crucial for peace of mind in Idaho’s dynamic real estate market.
Like other nearby states such as Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, and Colorado, Idaho mandates that real estate agents purchase and maintain E&O insurance. Most Idaho real estate franchises and vendors also require it. Navigating the nuances of professional liability insurance for real estate in Idaho can be complex and varied, with each policy differing in coverage and cost.
Idaho Real Estate E&O Policies
The Idaho Real Estate Commission (IREC) allows Idaho real estate agents to purchase their E&O from the state’s group program or any private company that provides adequate coverage.
In Idaho, some real estate brokers and agents opt for individual errors and omissions policies that follow them even if they switch brokerages. Additionally, brokerages may purchase an excess errors & omissions policy to serve as an umbrella policy for individual agent policies.
While this approach has worked for some, many Idaho agencies have found that a single policy covering both the firm and agents can be competitively priced and provide broader and stronger coverage. In fact, some of the largest agencies in Idaho have opted for this type of E&O policy.
Coverages Missing from Many Idaho E&O Policies
Real estate E & O insurance is a highly specialized type of coverage that insurance agents are experienced with, but the extent of coverage can vary greatly between insurance carriers.
This often leads to E&O coverage gaps for real estate firms, which are only discovered when a claim is denied.
In Idaho, many E&O policies have exclusions for contingent bodily injury and property damage, which are typically excluded under general liability policies related to professional services. It is important to have a strong E&O policy that covers these claims.
Furthermore, many policies have limited coverage for property management, discrimination, fair housing or discrimination claims, copyright/trademark violations, pollution, environmental claims (e.g. mold, fungi, lead, asbestos), and escrow claims.
