Duty of Disclosure

What you need to tell us

Before you enter into this contract of insurance with us, you have a duty of disclosure under the Insurance Contracts Act 1984.

We may ask you questions that are relevant to our decision to insure you and on what terms. If we do, you must tell us anything that you know and that a reasonable person in the circumstances would include in their answer. It is important that you understand that you are answering for yourself and anyone else to whom these questions apply.

You have this duty until we agree to insure you.

If you do not tell us anything you are required to, we may cancel your contract or reduce the amount we will pay you if you make a claim, or both.

If your failure to tell us is fraudulent, we may refuse to pay a claim and treat the contract as if it never existed.
