Insurance: Maintenance of policy

  • other security
  • proof of coverage
  • claims
  • duty of Division.


Except as otherwise provided in subsection 2, a licensee shall maintain a policy of insurance covering liability for errors and omissions in an amount not less than $250,000 executed by an insurer authorized to do business in this State and approved by the Division.


In lieu of such a policy of insurance, a licensee may deposit with the Division under such terms and conditions as the Division may prescribe, a like amount of lawful money of the United States or any other form of security authorized by NRS 100.065. If security is provided in the form of a savings certificate, certificate of deposit or investment certificate, the certificate must state that the amount is unavailable for withdrawal except upon order of the Division.


A licensee shall provide proof of the coverage required pursuant to this section, including, without limitation, the name and address of the insurer, to a client.


The provisions of subsections 1 and 2 do not prohibit the licensee from maintaining a policy of insurance, deposits or other forms of security in excess of the amounts required by subsections 1 and 2.


Any person claiming against a policy of insurance or deposit required by this section may bring an action in a court of competent jurisdiction on the policy of insurance or deposit for damages to the extent covered by the policy. A person who brings an action on a policy or deposit shall notify the Division in writing upon filing the action.


Upon receiving a request from a client of an exchange facilitator, the Division shall notify the client:


That a policy of insurance is in effect or that a deposit has been made, and the amount of either; and


If there is an action against the policy of insurance, of the title, court and case number of the action and the amount sought by the plaintiff.


If an insurer or, in the case of a deposit, the Division wishes to make payment without awaiting action by a court, the amount of the policy or deposit must be reduced to the extent of any payment made by the insurer or the Division in good faith under the policy or deposit. Any payment must be based on written claims received by the insurer or the Division before any action is taken by a court.


Claims against a policy of insurance or deposit have equal priority, and if the policy or deposit is insufficient to pay all claims in full, they must be paid on a pro rata basis. Partial payment of claims is not full payment, and any claimant may bring an action against the exchange facilitator for the unpaid balance.
