E&O - Make Sure You're Covered!

            Skyrocketing Errors and Omission costs have caused many agents to investigate alternative carriers. Be sure that when you compare pricing you understand all of the coverages you have and what coverages the new carrier is offering.

             Most importantly, you want to be sure that you have coverage for prior acts. Remember that the E&O policy covers claims that are caused and reported during the policy period. For example, if you are buying a new policy in May, 2008 it may cover negligent acts that occur and are reported during the policy period May, 2008 to May, 2009. That is fine if your agency just opened in May 2008, but that is not adequate if your agency opened in May, 2000. Without "prior acts" or retroactive coverage you have no coverage for claims that were caused by negligent acts that occurred from May, 2000 to May, 2008.

            We require that our agents have retroactive or prior acts coverage that dates back to, at least, the date you entered into your agency relationship with Old Republic Title.

             Should you have any questions, please contact your agency representative or a member of the underwriting staff.

 Should you have any questions, please contact our underwriting counsel: Steve Gratman; Sue Swick or Dwight Edwards.




Please contact Sue Morgan at Old Republic Title with any questions
or give us a call at 610-687-8020 or 800-842-2080.
