  4. 4. Insurance… <ul><li>3 rd Party indemnity (referral). Protects the Broker, Realtor, title company, attorneys, lending institutions, relocation companies, etc. from wrongful referral. </li></ul><ul><li>2 Types of policies…Claims made…cheaper alternative. Coverage provided for claims made during policy period only. Must keep current or all is lost.
