Utah Real Estate E&O Insurance

Real Estate Errors & Omissions (E&O) in Utah

What you need to know about Utah Professional Liability in Real Estate

Whether you specialize in luxury real estate Park City, manage a property management or rental agency in Salt Lake City, or focus on commercial and residential real estate outside of Provo and Sandy, one thing is the same. A solid real estate professional liability (errors & omissions) policy will provide you with peace of mind in the current UT real estate market.

Although Utah real estate agencies are not required to purchase real estate E&O insurance, most Utah real estate franchises require E&O, and independent real estate firms almost always want a strong policy in place to protect their agency. 

Many real estate brokers, and also insurance brokers, don’t realize that real estate E&O is a specialized insurance policy with many complex coverages. In fact, there are significant differences between most of the insurance companies offering E&O that brokers need to be aware of. Let’s explain futher…

How do E&O policies differ, and how is FirmSecured different?

The key to understanding a real estate E&O policy is the policy exclusions. Brokers often think that a given claim is covered, until they find out about some of the many real estate E&O exclusions. 

For example, many policies exclude bodily injury and property damage claims arising from professional services. That is particularly an issue for professionals in property management, but this is a common claim for residential real estate agents as well. Think about all the possibilities of lawsuits in this area: a client is injured while an agent is showing a home, a property manager is sued for property damage, or a dog bites a client. 

Many E&O policies contain little coverage for fair housing claims, the purchase or sale of land or property owned by an agent, broker price opinions, copyright violations, mold, or open house claims. Some policies even allow the claims expenses and defense costs paid by the insurance company to decrease the normal policy limits.

Our goal at FirmSecured is to help brokers understand their current coverage. After a review of your policy together, brokers realize how valuable it is to simply be aware of current coverage gaps and issues. But we don’t stop there. Because we are an independent agency, we work with most of the insurance companies with programs for real estate E&O. This allows us to help you compare multiple options to your current policy, so you can see if there are more robust E&O options available for your firm.
