Title Agent E&O Course Available on Learntitle

Approved for 1 credit
Enroll Here

Due to the litigious nature of society today, professional liability insurance (aka E&O) has become increasingly important in many industries, especially the Title Industry.  While it may not be mandated by every state, E&O Insurance is increasingly being required by the major Title Insurance carriers and lenders across the United States.

Your E&O policy is designed to protect you against claims for which you become legally liable to pay due to allegations of an unintentional error or omission by you or one of your employees.   Professional liability policies are written on a claims-made and reported basis, covering claims that occur subsequent to the retroactive date stated in the declarations and which are first made against you and reported to the company while the policy is in force.  For this reason, maintaining prior acts coverage is extremely important.  Without prior acts coverage, your covered acts are limited to those performed and reported during the current policy period only.  While switching carriers, please be aware of the significance of the retroactive date in your policy.

When seeking Professional Liability insurance, it is easy to be misled by some carriers offering a much lower premium than you had paid previously.  It is common for these policies to be written retro-inception (with no prior acts coverage).

This course will cover the forms, endorsements, terms and definitons related to E & O insurance

As Stewart continued to seek opportunities outside of the U.S., Mr. Skalka led those efforts by becoming Chairman of Stewart’s International Group in 2005. In 2007, he became the first person outside of the Morris and Stewart families to be appointed President and Managing Director of Global Underwriting Services of Stewart Title Guaranty Company, where he remains a member of its Board of Directors. Mr. Skalka had also helped to lead the National Title Services Division of Stewart since 2009.
