Texas Real Estate E&O Insurance
Texas Real Estate Errors & Omissions Insurance
E&O for TX Real Estate Agents, Brokers, and Firms
As a Texas real estate agent or broker, protecting your business with errors and omissions (E&O) insurance is crucial in this quickly-changing real estate market.
Unlike the nearby states of New Mexico, Colorado, and Louisiana, real estate E&O is not currently mandated for real estate agents in Texas. That said, E&O coverage is highly recommended to protect you and your firm from financial devastation in case of a claim, and is often required by real estate franchises and vendors.
Our team can help you navigate the different E&O policies available and find the coverage that fits your needs, whether you run a property management firm in Austin, specialize in commercial real estate in Dallas, or manage a large residential real estate firm in Fort Worth.
How are Texas Real Estate Professional Liability Policies Different?
Navigating the ins and outs of professional liability insurance for real estate in Texas can be a challenging and nuanced process. Every policy varies in terms of coverage and cost, making it crucial to select a policy that aligns with your specific needs.
Not all errors and omissions (E&O) policies in Texas offer comprehensive coverage for the various professional liability claims that real estate agents face regularly. For example, some policies may exclude coverage for contingent bodily injury and property damage claims resulting from incidents like a buyer being hurt due to undisclosed mold or a client falling while visiting a property.
Coverage is often limited or excluded for claims related to fair housing or discrimination, the sale of agent-owned property, and pollution claims. These limitations may go unnoticed until you find yourself in the midst of a lawsuit, leaving you vulnerable to unexpected financial losses.
To ensure you have adequate protection, it’s essential to conduct a thorough review of your E&O policy. This review should include assessing the limits of your coverage, evaluating the exclusions and endorsements, and understanding how your policy will respond in various situations.
Insurance for Specialized Texas Real Estate Services
Not only do many TX E & O policies not provide adequate coverage for common claims real estate agents face, they also might not cover all of the real estate services you or your firm provide.
For example, many standard policies may not provide sufficient protection for appraisers, commercial real estate agents, property managers, agents flipping homes, agents selling homes they developed or constructed, or real estate auctioneers.
Many Texas firms require tailored E&O policies that can protect them against their unique risks. It’s important to understand that each area of specialization within the real estate industry comes with its unique set of potential liabilities, and a one-size-fits-all E&O policy simply does not exist.
