Fraudulent Misrepresentation

Definition of "Fraudulent misrepresentation"

Christina Pascarella real estate agent
Christina Pascarella, Real Estate Agent Mayo &, Inc., Realtors

Dishonest statement to induce an insurance company to write coverage on an applicant. If the company knew the truth, it would not accept the applicant. Fraudulent misrepresentation gives a property and casualty company grounds to terminate a policy at any time. A life insurance company, on the other hand, can terminate a policy on the grounds of fraudulent misrepresentation only during its first two years; after that, the incontestable clause takes effect.
