Duty to not misrepresent

Your duty when you apply for insurance

Before you enter into an insurance contract, you have a duty to not misrepresent under the Insurance Contracts Act 1984.

By law, you must take reasonable care not to make a misrepresentation. This means giving us true, complete and accurate answers to our questions, including where you provide information on someone else's behalf.

We use your answers to decide whether to insure you and on what terms.

If you do not tell us something

If any of your answers are misleading, incomplete, inaccurate or fraudulent we may reduce or not pay a claim, cancel your policy or treat it as if it never existed.

If you don't understand a question, you're unsure how to answer or if anything is unclear, please call us.
