Importance of Due Diligence - NHDs

Posted by Kevin McElroy on Feb 21, 2020 3:55:18 PM

Due Diligence - NHDs

Risk management is the first line of defense against potential real estate claims. An effective risk management program can prevent a dispute from becoming a claim, and can be a compelling factor in reducing the actual cost of a claim.

Learn how you can minimize your business risk and protect your future success.

Guest Speakers:

Join Robert J. Sunderland, practicing real estate attorney and managing partner at the law firm of Sunderland I McCutchan, LLP

Chuck Piro, Disclosure Source Regional VP

Disclosing Natural Hazards Zones, as well as revealing Special Taxes and Direct Assessments, is the responsibility of both the seller and the agent representing the seller. Meanwhile, the NHD Industry remains unregulated and is largely made up of non-qualified entrepreneurs who offer sellers and agents little or no Liability Protection. Learn what to look for when performing your due diligence in selecting a NHD Provider. Fine Print disclaimers can reveal details unfavorable to you and your client.
