    Thank you, I think..
    As the broker responsible for E & O insurance & loss prevention for our group of 80 brokerages I’ve just sent your excellent article out to everyone as a cautionary tale ..
    We can certainly add clear written explanations of how vacancy exclusions work when sending out residential rental policies – and after Cheecham & Meadow North we’ve been recimending that anyway – but if insureds can now avoid exclusions by claiming they didn’t read them, I’m not sure we can ever win..
    Inevitably it will be the one exclusion we didn’t explain in depth that will apply .
