Professional Liability Insurance for Commercial Title and Escrow Agents
The commercial real estate industry has undergone one of the most difficult times in recent history with an influx of lawsuits and claims resulting from the mortgage and foreclosure crises of 2008. This litigious environment has underscored the need for Professional Liability Errors and Omissions Insurance for all professionals throughout the commercial real estate sector, including Title and Escrow Agents.
Professional Liability insurance for Title and Escrow Agents from Axis Insurance Services, LLC is designed to provide defense and indemnity coverage for covered claims relating to an error or omission that occurs in the course of providing professional services.
For Title Agents, claims can arise based on allegations involving: failure to find mortgage assignment; failure to find land subdivision; failure to find deed entry or deed fraud; failure to find will and probate entry; failure to find liens, encumbrances, easements or encroachments; an incomplete review of title; improper or inadequate documentation; a search performed on wrong parcel; or breach of contract.
Escrow Agents could find themselves embroiled in a lawsuit over allegedly failing to collect all funds; releasing funds before all conditions are met; breach of contract; breach of fiduciary duty; failing to make appropriate payment; improper or inadequate documentation; or wiring funds to the wrong account.
Even if a lawsuit is without merit, the cost of defending it can be significant, making Professional Liability insurance coverage even more critical.
