New Environmental & Other Coverages for Home Inspectors
By Isaac Peck
One of the largest, nationwide providers of professional liability (E&O) insurance for home inspectors announces the addition of new, important environmental and other coverages to its flagship home inspector’s E&O program. Many of the new coverages are included in OREP’s base policy with no additional premium. The program is available in most states. Click for details and coverage.
The addition of these new coverages to OREP’s E&O home inspector program makes it easy and affordable for every home inspector to be protected with comprehensive coverage, according to David Brauner, Senior Broker for OREP.org.
Brauner says the OREP package includes comprehensive E&O, full general liability, pest/WDO, lead paint, pool & spa, EIFS/Stucco, commercial, indoor air quality testing, green building inspections, infrared thermography, rodent inspections and more; mold and septic inspection coverage can be added for a small additional cost. (Certain coverages vary by state. Please ask your OREP agent.)
Brauner, who has helped inspectors place insurance coverage for over 20 years said, “OREP was exhibiting at a conference last year when several inspectors visiting our booth said they love the program but needed certain coverages that were not included. It took a year but these coverages and many others have been added, making it one of the broadest packages of coverage available for home inspectors. And better still, most new coverages are included free in the base policy, at the already competitive minimum premium ($1,250). This is why cost should no longer be a factor that keeps any home inspector from enjoying complete coverage.”
No Time Wasted on Quoting
OREP is the only program that allows most inspectors to get back to work fast with no quoting required. Most home inspectors can secure coverage without having to waste time on the back and forth of quoting, Brauner said. “The self-rating application, that is unique to OREP.org, works for most inspectors and companies. It gets inspectors back to work fast. And next year most policies will renew automatically at the same premium with no application needed at all,” Brauner said.
“If inspectors take as much care examining their E&O insurance coverage once a year, as they do on every inspection most every day of the year, the advantages of OREP’s program will be obvious,” Brauner said. “Give us a call or visit OREP.org to get the details. We answer the phone!” Click for details and coverage.
