Nebraska Real Estate E&O Insurance
Nebraska Real Estate Errors and Omissions
Is E&O Required in Nebraska?
Nebraska, like 13 other states in the US, requires E&O (professional liability) insurance for real estate agents. A number of NE real estate agents buy individual errors and omissions policies, with their brokerages often carrying an excess E&O policy. While this has worked for some, many Nebraska firms who have had individual agent coverage in the past have been pleasantly surprised to find that a single policy covering both the firm and the agents can be very competitive in price, but with much broader coverage. This is the way we do real estate E&O here at FirmSecured.
How do Nebraska E&O Policies Differ?
In Nebraska, broker/owners can purchase the errors & omissions policy that affords the strongest coverage for their brokerage. Because the coverage extends to the agents, they receive much better coverage than their individual E&O policies afforded them. In over half of the United States, a single firm policy for real estate E&O is commonplace for brokerages. We have a whole article which explains in depth the differences between individual, firm, and excess E & O coverage.
Why are brokers considering these options? Many Nebraska real estate E&O policies provide little to no coverage for common claims such as contingent bodily injury and property damage, discrimination/fair housing, escrow, property management, and environmental claims.

Cyber risk is an increasing concern for real estate brokers
