Quickly invite sellers and efficiently manage their disclosures
Let the Shields guide your sellers through the disclosure process
Limit your liability and protect sellers with our optional Home Sale Legal Protection™
There are plenty of tech companies trying to digitize the transaction and replace real estate professionals. We want no part of that. We’re founded by risk management experts and we have one goal: to stop home sale legal issues for sellers, agents, and brokers.
“As a realtor, this is an incredible product that I wish I had though of first. I’m extremely pleased to have this protection on every transaction!”
We’ve seen it over and over. A home is sold and everyone has happily moved on. Fourteen months later, a storm hits and a roof leak causes extensive damage. The buyer is upset and files a claim against the seller and listing agent stating they knew about the problem and didn’t disclose. They demand payment for repairs, punitive damages, attorney’s fees, and even threaten to void the sale.
“Sellers Shield helped one of my clients on a post-closing issue. They responded quickly and got the problem solved for my seller. I recommend Sellers Shield on all my listings.”

Our tools and forms are forever free and you can invite unlimited sellers to disclose. You can choose to add your headshot and branding throughout the seller experience by upgrading to a premium account for $9.99 a month.
The Smart Sellers Tools™ give definitions, tips, and warns the seller when they are answering a question that is commonly cited in lawsuits. There are no space limitations allowing the seller to include as much detail as necessary to properly disclose. The forms also require the seller to answer every question assuring a fully completed disclosure form. After the seller completes the forms, a custom formatted pdf is generated and emailed directly to the agent and seller and stored in their dashboard.
Depending on the state, addenda will either be automatically added based on the seller’s answers (ie. lead based paint form) or the agent can choose which addenda are required.
Disclosure forms are legal documents and sellers commonly ask their agents how to answer questions on the forms. These questions put agents in a difficult situation legally, because they are not attorneys. The Smart Sellers Tools™ are designed by legal experts to help answer these questions, separating agents from the disclosure process and limiting their liability in the event of a claim.
Additionally, purchasing or informing sellers of Home Sale Legal Protection™ fulfills fiduciary duty and proves the agent has provided the highest standard of care in the event of a claim
You’ll be able to track all of your seller’s progress in your dashboard. Once your seller completes the disclosure process, you will receive an email with the completed pdf. You can also manage and download completed forms from within your dashboard.
The seller can access their forms in their dashboard anytime to edit and make changes. If edits are made on a fully executed document, the seller(s) will have to resign and date.
When sellers get sued the agent and brokerage are almost always named in the lawsuit. Leading national insurance companies have endorsed Sellers Shield in their E&O policies, offering brokers / agents deductible waivers on claims where Sellers Shield is used.
