What insurance do REIV Members need?

Professional Indemnity
This provides cover in the event a third party alleges that you have been negligent in performing your services or giving advice, and as a result, they have suffered injury or financial loss. Professional Indemnity insurance may cover the cost of legal representation, as well as compensation you’re required to pay as result of the claim.
Public Liability
Public liability insurance covers your liability for third-party personal injury or property damage arising out of your business activities. For example, if a client or visitor was to slip and fall while on your business premises, you would look to this policy to cover respond to the claim.

Similarly, if a ‘for sale’ sign you installed caused damage to a property, this policy could help cover the legal costs to defend you against any claim, as well as any damages you’re required to pay.
Business Insurance
This includes cover for your physical business premises if they’re damaged by a fire, or other covered events. Business Package Insurance can also include public liability Insurance, so if you take out Public Liability as part of this, you don’t need to take out a separate policy for this cover.

Business package insurance allows you to bundle a number of classes of insurance into one policy. For example, you may elect to take cover for your premises against loss, damage and interruption, as well as ublicpublic liability, money, glass and theft. If you insure a particular class of insurance through a Business Package, you do not need to insure that risk elsewhere.
Cyber Insurance
Cyber insurance helps protect you against some cyber related threats, such as cyber criminals hacking into your network and stealing your data. You probably store valuable client data like bank account details, as well as forms of ID such as passports and drivers’ licences. This type of information can be enough of a lure for cyber criminals, so this coverage may be worth considering when protecting your business.
Management Liability
As the owner of your business, you’re likely responsible for making some big decisions. Management liability insurance is designed to cover you personally for allegations of wrongdoing made against you in relation to the management of your business.
FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some questions commonly asked by Real Estate professionals.
Do real estate agents need insurance?
You work in real estate because of your passion for property – but also to earn a living. Sometimes all it takes is one unhappy client, or a severe weather event, to completely bring your business operations to a grinding halt. Insurance coverage can act as your a safety net so you’re not forced to close your doors due to being inundated with unexpected costs.
How much can I expect to pay for my insurances?
The cost of your insurance will depend on a number of factors, most importantly, the types of insurance policies you take out. There are several options available to you, and you’ll need to review your business’s situation to decide which covers to take out. It might be tempting to opt for the minimum level of cover to save money in the short term, but this may not be offering you enough protection for the wide range of risks your business faces. Speaking to an insurance broker can help you understand your risks and allow you to make an informed decision.
Why do I need Professional Indemnity (PI) Insurance?
Professional Indemnity Insurance is designed for any business which is involved in providing professional advice or services to clients, and as a real estate agent, this is your core service. Whether you’re advising a seller of a property value, or a landlord on which tenant to approve, your clients make big decisions based on your advice. It’s therefore possible that advice you provide doesn’t end up with the best outcome, and your client takes action against you for financial loss they subsequently suffer. This is where PI insurance becomes crucial – it will help you cover the legal cost of your representation in court, as well as the financial compensation you may be required to pay.
