Duty of Disclosure

Under the terms of the various policies, we have a ‘duty of disclosure’ regarding any material facts which may affect the Insurer’s view of the risk or the premium charged. This obligation applies, not only from commencement, but throughout the period of all policies. Failure to disclose material facts can invalidate cover.

Our Insurers have assessed and accepted the risks at agreed premiums on the basis of the information provided to them. Any variation in these details, if not notified to them, could result in an uninsured loss.

Material facts would include, but are not limited to:

  • Motoring offences or pending prosecution and medical conditions
  • Changes to, or disconnection of, security or fire protection systems
  • Property which becomes vacant
  • Changes to business activities
  • Purchase of equipment with a significant value 

If you are in doubt as to what constitutes a material fact, please contact the Insurance Services Team or email insurance@le.ac.uk
