You are required to make a fair presentation of the risk to Rossborough as your insurance broker, disclosing every material circumstance which you know or ought to know relating to the risk to be insured.

You will be expected to know any information which is known by individuals who are:
In addition, you are expected to know any information that should reasonably have been revealed by a reasonable search of information available to you (whether the search is conducted by making enquiries or by other means). This could include any information held within your organisation or by any other person.
The disclosure you give must be made in a manner which would be reasonably clear and accessible to a prudent insurer.
Every material representation of a matter of fact which you make must be substantially correct and every material representation as to a matter of expectation or belief must be made in good faith.
Failure to comply with the duty of fair presentation could mean that the policy is void or that Insurers are not liable to pay all or part of your claim(s).
