Why professional indemnity insurance for Real Estate professionals?

As a real estate professional, if one of your clients suffers loss due to your professional negligence, there's a chance they will take legal action against your business. It’s an unfortunate reality that just one small mistake, error of judgement, injury or perceived bad advice can lead to a claim – and potentially cost you both professionally and financially.

Aon arranges professional indemnity insurance which has been designed for real estate professionals’ common risks, and with flexible cover options you can start now and help protect your business and your livelihood.

New and improved professional indemnity insurance

After researching numerous professional indemnity insurance providers, Aon has negotiated a new arrangement with CGU Insurance, an experienced and reputable insurer who is committed to providing quality insurance solutions tailored to the Real Estate Industry. The new professional indemnity insurance policy provides highly competitive rates; key improvements include fewer exclusions and enhanced coverage.

Professional indemnity cover can help with:

  • Claims resulting from a breach of professional duty, made against your business and notified to the insurer during the policy period.
  • Legal fees, settlements and court costs associated with any such claim1.
