Broad Coverage, Peace of Mind
Complete coverage should never be optional, according to David Brauner, Senior Insurance Broker at OREP. “If you want to do the best for yourself, your family and your business, be sure to choose a professional insurance policy that will protect you adequately should the unexpected happen,” Brauner says. “A broad policy covers you for the threats that you can anticipate as well as the unexpected ones that you don’t see coming. A broad policy covers all the bases and keeps you safe.”

Nationally recognized home inspector attorney Joe Denneler adds a layer of protection to your inspection business by providing inspection contracts written to the home inspection standards applicable and specific to your state. There are many factors to consider, including state and local regulations, association standards and consumer protection laws. If you’re using a generic agreement, or one patched together over many years, it may have elements that don’t include or conflict with superseding state and local requirements. These agreements are written based on existing state home inspector standards of practice and regulations where applicable. In non-regulated states, they are written to conform to the standards of practice used by the inspector. OREP insureds/members enjoy a $50 discount on this essential service.
