Albany District Insurance Brokers disclaims, to the extent permitted by law, all liability for any loss or damage (whether direct, indirect, special or consequential) arising from use of, or reliance on, any information on this internet site. Where the law prohibits exclusion of all liability, Albany District Insurance Brokers limits its liability, to the extent permitted by law, to the resupply of the relevant information.
Section 20B of the Insurance Contracts Act 1984 (Cth) states that a consumer must take reasonable care not to make a misrepresentation to an insurer when entering into a contract of insurance, including renewal, extension, variation or reinstatement of a Consumer Insurance Contract. Before you do any of these things, you may be required to answer questions and the insurer will use the answers you provide in deciding whether to insure you, and anyone else to be insured under the policy, and on what terms. To ensure you meet your duty, your answers to the questions must be truthful, accurate and complete.
Under the legislation, a consumer insurance contract is one for personal, domestic or household purposes (which includes sickness & accident insurance and travel insurance).
Before you enter into any other Contract of General Insurance with an Insurer, that is NOT a Consumer Insurance Contract, you have a duty under the Insurance Contracts Act 1984 to disclose to the Insurer every matter you know, or could reasonably expect to know, is relevant to the Insurer's decision whether to accept the risk of 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 matters that diminish the risk to be undertaken by the Insurer, that is of common knowledge or that your Insurer knows of or, in the ordinary course of it's business ought to know or as to which the compliance with your duty is waived by the Insurer.
If you fail to comply with your duty of disclosure, the Insurer may be entitled to reduce the 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.
