    Default Insurance

    Just about to look into getting insurance so that I can start my business. I was wondering which company out there to use for E&O insurance. Ive heard of several of them but not sure which ones most folks use. Also, is general liability something that is needed as well? Thanks

    General liability is all you really need. Most will attack that statement but that is my belief. I think E&O is a sham but we have to have it here in Texas.

    Shoot, I'll stop there. This is one of my most hated subjects at the moment.

    I am about to put 2500 to 3000 out for my needed and kept up insurance.

    A 250,000.00 E&O and gen Liability with taxes should not cost more than that. A million E&O and gen liability will be 3000 or more. And that is for what

    They start at 100,000. Personally I believe that is all you will ever need. I go for the 250,000. Really don't know why. Inspect everything. If you miss something small on any one item 100,000 grand should cover you. Matter of fact a couple grand will cover you. Shoot most have a minimum of 1,500 deductible. That's about all the bull I need to hear to set me off. A few grand a year and I still have to pay the first 1,500 up front before they pay for anything.

    Oh yeah, I gotta go now, the blood pressure is rising.

    You are about to hear from all the litigation folks. Ask them if they ever got sued on a home inspection and what the outcome was, what they are or were insured for and what there deductible was.

    If you look at every thing in a home *(uh oh, walk the attics)* (that will bring some smiles). Even if you missed an entire system on a two system HVAC set up, what will that cost you?? 5,000 there abouts. You miss a couple minor cracks in the foundation and an engineer deems it necessary for a few piers around that corner of a house, hmm, maybe a few thousand.

    Shoot, gotta go. Foam is starting to come out the corners of my mouth.
