Professional indemnity insurance for estate agents … everything you need under one roof

There’s a favourite old joke about a materialistic estate agent. One morning, he rolls up outside the office in a brand new BMW. But as he’s getting out of the car, a lorry speeds by and takes the car door off. When the police arrive, the furious estate agent rants at the officers about how his precious car is ruined. Finally, one of the officers interrupts.

‘If you don’t mind me saying, sir,’ the officer says. ‘Haven’t you got more important things to worry about?’
‘Such as?’ the estate agent asks.
‘Well, sir, the lorry also ripped off your right arm.’
The estate agent looks down, horrified. ‘Oh my God!’ he cries. ‘My Rolex is gone!’

As an estate agent, you’ve probably heard all the bad jokes before. Many of the worst jokes suggest estate agents can be economical with the truth, but that’s not what we’ve found. In our experience, property agents are a friendly, honest bunch who want to concentrate on one thing: providing a brilliant service to their clients.

We’ve got you covered
Here at Custodian Insurance, we understand that every industry is unique, so we provide professional indemnity insurance that’s designed specifically for property agents. But we also understand that estate agents have better things to concern themselves with (missing Rolex’s aside) than insurance.

In a less-than-buoyant property market subdued by political and financial uncertainty, the expertise of good estate agents is more important than ever. That’s why our expanded property agent insurance is designed to cover exactly what you need, leaving you to focus on what you do best: delivering expert advice and wearing the heck out of sharp suits.

Our updated professional indemnity insurance, designed for your business
We’re always looking out for new ways to help your business. With that in mind, some of the latest additions to our property agent cover include:

  • Loss of documents cover, for both your own company documents and third-party documents.

  • Cyber and digital insurance, now with third-party hacker cover.

  • Disputed fees cover, protecting your business should a client refuse to pay.

Why is this expanded cover so important? If we go back to the old joke, it’s the difference between insuring that shiny new sports car with third-party insurance and choosing top-notch fully comp cover. There’s just no competition.
