Customized Policy Forms

Our policy's terms, conditions and definitions are tailored to meet the unique needs of the real estate industry.  These features minimize the need for mid-term changes to the umbrella and it minimizes the chance of errors, omissions and gaps in coverage.

Broad Definition of Insured - Recognizes the insured as a member of the RPG.  Automatically covers partnerships, JVs and LLCs if related to the insured's business and covered locations.

Per location aggregate wording built in to the coverage - subject to handling by the underlying policy

Third Party Discrimination - Because of their diverse nature, companies with large real estate portfolios may be exposed to third-party discrimination risks.  Our enhanced third party discrimination coverage is provided regardless of whether scheduled underlying insurance provides such coverage

Professional Liability - On-site services such as spas and salons create potential professional liability exposures which traditional coverage may not adequately cover. Our enhanced coverage applies to all resultant Bodily Injury or Property Damage arising out of professional services performed by or on behalf of the Insured. Coverage also extends to financial loss resulting from the wrongful acts of an insured's Employed Lawyers.

Pollution enhancement - Our enhanced coverage allows for extended time to discover and report a pollution claim and for additional possible exposures such as pesticides, herbicides, pool maintenance chemicals, and carbon monoxide. Our enhanced pollution coverage is provided regardless of whether scheduled underlying insurance provides such coverage.

CrisisResponse® - a built-in enhancement that grants insured 24/7 access to claims experts, immediate funds, the nation's leading public relations and crisis management firms in the event of a catastrophic casualty crisis
