Francine Dupont, Real Estate Agent Dupont Real Estate Corp / Keller Williams

Intention to withhold or secrete information. If an insured withholds information on a material fact, about which the insurance company has no knowledge, the company has grounds to void the contract. For example, the insured neglects to tell the company that, within a week of the policy issue date, the manufacture of gunpowder in the insured business's building will commence. If an explosion related to the gunpowder then occurs in the building the company has legal grounds for not paying for the property damage.
