Why Do Home Inspectors Need Insurance?

Even though most states don’t have insurance requirements for home inspectors, the benefits of having insurance coverage can make all the difference for your livelihood and risk management plan. When you examine a home and its structure, it can leave you open to all kinds of risks.
From bodily injuries to accidental property damages, home inspector insurance helps protect small businesses like yours. We’re here to help keep you protected with seguro de negocio coverages made for your industry.

What Kind of Insurance Do Home Inspectors Need?

Many home inspectors start with a Póliza para propietarios de empresas (BOP), which is great for small businesses. With a BOP, you’ll receive these three essential coverages:
  • General liability insurance, which helps protect business owners from claims that their services caused bodily injury and property damage.
  • Business income insurance to help recover your lost income if you can’t operate because of covered property damage.
  • Commercial property insurance to help protect your business’ building or home inspecting tools, whether they’re owned or rented. This includes coverage for your tape measures, respirators, moisture meters and more.
You can even choose to customize your BOP to add more coverage, allowing you to create the best home inspector insurance policy for your business. To learn more about BOP coverage, E&O insurance and general liability insurance, obtener una cotización  hoy mismo.
