Wisconsin Real Estate E&O Insurance

Real Estate Errors and Omissions in Wisconsin

WI Real Estate E&O Requirements

Whether you own a residential real estate agency in Green Bay, focus on property management in Kenosha or Milwaukee, or manage a commercial real estate firm in Madison, a solid real estate E&O policy will give you peace of mind in the current WI market.

Although real estate errors & omissions insurance is not mandated for Wisconsin real estate agencies, brokers, or agents, real estate franchises generally require it. Most WI real estate firms want a quality E&O policy in place to protect their agency.

Real estate E&O is a specialty insurance market that many insurance agents do not have experience working with. A number of real estate E&O policies in Wisconsin have exclusions, gaps, or little coverage for some common real estate errors & omissions claims. Many real estate brokers assume they have coverage for a given lawsuit until a claim is denied. These gaps leave brokers paying costs out of pocket that could have been covered by a quality E&O policy.

Let’s explain some of the important variables in Wisconsin real estate professional liability insurance.

How are Wisconsin E&O Insurance Policies Different?

Many real estate professional liability (E&O) policies have little to no coverage for pollution claims, including failure to disclose mold, or any bodily injury that arises out of these pollutants. In fact, many E&O insurance policies simply exclude all bodily injury and property damage claims arising from your professional services. Our firm has worked with brokers who can end up paying tens of thousands on these denied claims.

Other E&O common E&O issues include property management exclusions, low fair housing or discrimination claim limits, and agent-owned property coverage restrictions.

Each paragraph, endorsement, and word of your E&O policy form can mean the difference between paying a claim out of pocket, and having the insurance company pay the bill.
