Lipson Neilson Partner Dax Watson will co-present “As the Market Soars, So Do the Lawsuits: How Market Conditions Impact Real Estate Professional Liability Claims”, along with Regan Katz, Managing Director of Wortham Insurance and Risk Management, at the 2018 CLM (Claims and Litigation Management) Management and Professional Liability Conference on June 21, 2018 in Boston, MA.
This presentation will dive into the ramifications of America's real estate market that is trending up and approaching pre-2008 levels.
How does that impact real estate claims? This session will focus on claims that arise out of investment-related transactions like fix-and-flip, buy-and-hold, and investment partnerships that ultimately lead to claims citing poor workmanship, undisclosed defects, and non-permitted work all passed on to the real estate professionals involved in the transaction.
The active real estate market also is leading to increased property management portfolios and VRBO type properties. This, too, leads to claims against the real estate professionals.
This presentation will explore how standard insurance policies for real estate professionals respond to such claims.
