Harcourts agents

Essential cover for all Harcourts agents

Overview

Insurance for Harcourts agents is a straightforward choice. Gallagher is the preferred insurance supplier of Harcourts, and we provide insurance solutions to hundreds of its agents across Australia.

All Harcourts agents need to do when contacting us is to confirm which Harcourts office you're from, and you'll be able to access our exclusive range of products and services.

Our core product is our professional indemnity (PI) insurance policy, which we believe is essential cover for all Harcourts agents. Why? Because, like all professionals, real estate agents are exposed to a range of risks in the course of daily work activities.

Whether it’s property management duties or working with clients to buy and sell property there’s an obligation to provide service and advice to a professional standard. Should that service or advice prove to be negligent and cause a client a potential financial loss, you could be exposed to a claim.

Taking out professional indemnity insurance with an insurance broker who is an expert in dealing with the real estate profession can provide you with the support and protection you need in the event of a claim. 

This is where Gallagher can help.

PI insurance for Harcourts agents - why you need it

Real estate agents face a range of risks and exposures in the running of your business. These can include:-

  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of your professional duty of care
  • Incorrect or misleading advice 
  • Poor property management
  • Breach of statutory provisions
  • Breaching auction rules

These risks are what PI insurance was designed to cover you for. In some states it’s a regulatory requirement for real estate professionals to hold PI insurance. However, even if it’s not mandatory in your region it’s a very sensible precaution to help protect you financially and reputationally. Gallagher’s PI insurance for Harcourts agents provides excellent cover at exceptional rates. Get an immediate quote on your PI insurance here.
