Description of Product or Service
The information or descriptions contained herein are not intended to be a complete description of all terms, exclusions and conditions applicable to the products and services, but are provided solely for information purposes. Full details of the insurance products are contained in the policy document.
Commencement and continuity of Cover?
Cover commences when we accept your application and by giving you a Transaction or Policy Number. Cover will not commence before the first day of the Period of Insurance whether or not money is paid before then. Remember: - No Transaction or Policy Number means no cover.
Landcover Insurance is issued for 12 months commencing on acceptance of your “Application ” and will continue and expire 4.00pm on the last day of the Calendar month 12 months later. This Insurance contract is non -renewable however an invitation to reapply will be sent early in the expiring month of your current policy. You can, for your convenience reapply at any time during that month and when accepted the insurance will commence at that time and date and your previous policy cancelled as of that time the new policy commences. This means that you have continuing insurance cover but not 2 policies at the same time. Any applications after the expiry date will result in an uninsured period.
Your Duty of Disclosure
All insurance Contracts are based on the Principle that all parties will act with Utmost Good Faith in all their dealings. This is recognised at law and reinforces the reason that “Your Duty of Disclosure “is required to be stated here and in the Policy Wording.
We at Landcover are obligated by the Insurance Industry’s Code of Practice to be honest, efficient, fair, transparent and timely in dealing with you, our customer.
We ensure that our staff and those representing us are appropriately trained and have sufficient product knowledge to conduct themselves professionally in all aspects of the services we provide.
You, when applying for Landcover Insurance are obligated to comply with what the Insurance Industry and the Insurance Contract Act 1984 refers to as “Your Duty Of Disclosure”.
Landcover, in arranging this insurance policy, acts on behalf of the Insurer and as such you need to tell us everything that you know or could be reasonably expected to know that is relevant to our acceptance of your Landcover Insurance Application.
Now you do not need to tell us anything that will reduce the insurance risk, that is common knowledge or is already something that we should know.
We must point out though, failure to comply or in the event of any non-disclosure by you that is found to be fraudulent may result in your Insurer cancelling your policy or reducing their liability in respect of claim.
Please, if you do not understand your Duty of Disclosure, ask us to explain it to you.
We act on behalf of the insurer when arranging insurance cover
We arrange policies for and on behalf of the insurer and act under a binding authority given to our Licensee by the insurer to administer and issue policies, alterations, cancellations. In all aspects of these policies, we act on behalf of the insurer and not for you. We remind you of this now and also on your Policy Schedule and our Financial Services Guide (FSG).
