AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Sellers Shield™, an industry leader in software and legal solutions that protect brokers, agents and home sellers from lawsuits, today announced an expansion into six new states; Maryland, Ohio, South Carolina, North Carolina, Nevada, and Oklahoma. The expansion will enable property sellers in each state to complete the associated state’s Disclosure Notice online using Sellers Shield’s Smart Seller Tools™. Effective immediately, brokers and agents in these states can provide their listing clients the tools at no cost.
Sellers Shield’s Smart Seller Tools™ include easy-to-use interactive disclosure forms, an instructional video, legal FAQs/definitions and custom-formatted PDFs. These tools guide home sellers through the disclosure process, preventing critical mistakes that can cause lawsuits. Real estate professionals can use their online dashboard to invite sellers to disclose, manage active disclosures and track completion status of each disclosure.

In addition to Smart Seller Tools™, Sellers Shield™ offers Home Sale Legal Protection™ that protects sellers with up to $20,000 paid legal representation on claims made after the sale. As an added benefit to brokers, Sellers Shield™ is endorsed by leading E&O insurance providers who offer deductible waivers on claims where Sellers Shield™ is used (varies by state).
