Is Real Estate Professional Liability Insurance Required in VA?

Unlike the nearby states of Tennessee and Kentucky, the Virginia Real Estate Board does not currently require that real estate agents or brokers purchase E&O insurance.

However, most real estate franchises in Virginia require proof of coverage. For almost every other VA real estate agency, E&O coverage is an essential part of their risk management program.

Most insurance agents, let alone real estate brokers, understand real estate E & O. It is a unique and specialized insurance policy, so you should be looking for a team of insurance professionals focused on VA real estate insurance.

Comparing Virginia Real Estate E&O Coverages

Real estate E&O policies are not all the same. Many Virginia E and O policies are missing crucial aspects of coverage.

One example is coverage for contingent bodily injury and property damage claims. Many professional liability insurance policies in Virginia exclude claims related to these types of lawsuits, which can be problematic for real estate firms.

In addition, many E&O policies exclude coverage for property management activities, fair housing claims, copyright/trademark violations, appraisals, auctions, and the sale of agent-owned property.

Real Estate Cyber Insurance in Virginia

Most brokers are concerned about the rise in cyber incidents. Some real estate franchises in Virginia are starting to require that their agencies maintain cyber liability insurance. This is because of the increasing cyber risk for agencies in recent years.

While some E&O and business owner policies can include some cyber limited coverage, brokers are beginning to find that a stand-alone cyber liability policy is quickly becoming a necessity for most firms. Real estate firms are especially increasingly at risk of liability for third-party wire fraud.
