Provision in most property insurance policies on real property that permits a policyholder to use an insured place for normal purposes related to occupancy. This might include storing remodeling materials or hobby equipment. This clause is important because a policy may be voided for fraud, concealment, or misrepresentation. A policy may also be suspended for increased hazard by an insured. The permission granted clause provides a defense against a charge that a policyholder has increased the hazard of covered property if the materials in question are a part of the insured's everyday lifestyle.
