About This Course:
Errors and omissions coverage, commonly known as E&O insurance, affords licensees, real estate brokerage firms and other real estate professionals protection against claims or lawsuits by clients who feel that their real estate representative failed to provide adequate services. Although most real estate professionals have heard of E&O insurance, and while most have E&O coverage, few actually review the specific terms of their insurance policy to ensure that they are protected to the fullest extent possible.

In this live webinar we will discuss errors and omissions insurance in general, and in the real estate realm in particular. We will discuss coverage and policy provision basics, and what to look for, what to ask for and what to avoid.
