Liability Coverage for Flippers

If you do some or all of the renovation work on a flip property, you have liability risk that is not covered by your standard premises liability policy. National Real Estate Insurance Group offers FlipShield to help protect you from property damage or bodily injury claims that may arise as a result of the renovation process.  

FlipShield is purchased as a stand-alone policy. Submit your property information using our online proposal request to receive a custom proposal. A Client Service Advisor will contact you to review coverage details and answer any questions you may have.  

 *FlipShield is not available to professional contractors or artisan/subcontractors.
