You have the same duty to disclose these matters to the insurer before you renew, extend, vary or reinstate a contract of General insurance. Your duty however, does not require disclosure of matter:•

that diminishes the risk to be undertaken by the insurer

that is of common knowledge

that your insurer knows or, in the ordinary course of his business, ought to know.


Important Conditions

Non-Disclosure If you fail to comply with your duty of disclosure, the insurer may be entitled to reduce his liability under the contract in respect of a claim or may cancel the contract. If your non-disclosure is fraudulent, the insurer may also have the option of avoiding the contract from its beginning. Average Provision The insurer will pay legal expenses in addition to the sum insured, if however, the total amount of the loss (less legal expenses) ultimately paid to the claimant(s) exceeds the sum insured then insurers will only pay (in addition to the sum insured) that proportion of the legal expenses as the sum insured bears to the loss.

Waiver of Insurer's Rights You must not enter into any agreement without the written authority of the insurer whereby any of their rights to which they become entitled as your insurer after settling or agreeing to settle a claim are prejudiced or limited in any way otherwise all benefit under the policy will be forfeited.
