Tap Into Our E&O Insurance Expertise for Mortgage Brokers & Lenders

The housing bubble and aftermath for many in the real estate industry brought home the importance of having the right type of risk management and insurance program in place, specifically when it comes to Errors and Omissions (E&O) insurance. Mortgage brokers and lenders, particularly, were hit hard when subprime mortgages made headlines and lawsuits resulted claiming allegations of wrongdoing in the course of performing their services.

NewMark specializes in providing Professional Liability or E&O insurance to the real estate sector, including mortgage brokers and lenders. We work with several top-rated insurance companies to find the best policy at the best price for our clients.

Program Features Available

Our E&O insurance program can be designed to include:

  • Options for separate limits for defense and indemnity
  • Innocent insured coverage for dishonest acts
  • Coverage for independent contractors
  • Claims related to discrimination allegations
  • Claims related to yield spread
  • Claims related to subprime loans

  • Spousal coverage
  • Disciplinary proceedings coverage
  • Programs for commercial lenders and distressed risks available

  • Risk management and loss control services available

The cost of an E&O insurance policy will depend on several factors including your revenue, state of practice, loss history, and the number of agents in the firm, among others. If as a principal, you’re also involved in another business, such as a real estate agency, mortgage banking entity, or a development, whether those entities are properly insured will also impact the cost of insurance. Our NewMark professionals will go over your specific operations to determine what you need and a tailor a policy for you at a competitive price.

We’re ready to work to protect you, your assets and your reputation.
