Completing this Proposal Form does not mean that you will automatically be granted insurance cover proposed. However, if insurance is granted, it will be based upon representations you give us. Should any particulars given have changed or be incorrect you must notify us immediately. We reserve the right to revise or withdraw any insurance granted at any time subject to any changes in such particulars.
Before you enter into a contract of general insurance with an Underwriter, you have a duty, under the Insurance Contracts Act 1984, to disclose to the Underwriter every matter that you know, or could reasonably be expected to know, is relevant to the insurer’s decision whether to accept the risk of the insurance and, if so, on what terms. You have the same duty to disclose those matters to the insurer before you renew, extend, vary or reinstate a contract of general insurance, Your duty however does not require disclosure of any matter:
It is important that all information contained in this proposal is understood by you and is correct, as you will be bound by your answers and by the information provided by you in this proposal. You should obtain advice before you sign this proposal if you do not properly understand any part of it. Your duty of disclosure continues after the proposal has been completed up until the contract of insurance is entered into.
If you fail to comply with your duty of disclosure, the Underwriter may be entitled to reduce its liability under the contract in respect of a claim or may cancel the contract. If your non-disclosure is fraudulent, the Underwriter may also have the option of avoiding the contract from its beginning.
