DUTY TO DISCLOSE ALL MATERIAL FACTS

You have a duty to disclose all material facts to insurers. Whenever you seek new insurance or to renew or amend existing insurance this duty requires notification to insurers of any information which might influence their decision whether or not to accept the proposed risk, what premium to charge and whether any special terms or conditions apply. This duty rests entirely with an insured ‐ insurers are under no duty to make enquiries of them.

 

Examples of matters that may be regarded as material are:

  • Details of all past claims and circumstances, irrespective of whether or not they were insured
  • Previous cover having been cancelled or declined by insurers
  • Refusal of membership or disciplinary action taken by a Professional Body

 

Failure to disclose material facts may result in the policy being avoided or claims not being paid. If you are unsure about whether something would be considered material it is recommended that you notify insurers.
