Quality should never be optional

Instinctively we all know that we get what we pay for, and when it comes to appraiser E&O insurance, no one wants to be stuck with unreliable coverage. Discount policies, which are becoming more popular these days, exclude coverage for the majority of claims that appraisers are now experiencing. Careful consideration of the current climate in the appraisal industry is more important than ever when shopping for E&O coverage for your business.

A discount policy may satisfy your lender's insurance requirements, but does it satisfy yours?

Many of us have seen the recent marketing efforts floating around offering cheap, no-frills E&O policies. These ads will often justify these "no-frills" policies with statements such as, "This program was designed to meet your lender's requirements" or "lenders do not require prior acts coverage." This type of discount premium advocates a low cost in exchange for minimal real world protection.

Having insurance through LIA proves its worth time and time again.

We encourage you to line up our E&O policy against any of these "no-frills" E&O providers to see the real difference. It has always been in our best interest to look after our appraiser clientele, impress them with our customer service and help move the protection of our industry forward. LIA offers uncompromising quality with conservative pricing.
