Insurance is a contract, a danger transfer mechanism whereby a organization (Underwriter) promised to compensate or indemnify an additional celebration (Policyholder) upon the payment of affordable premium to the insurance organization to cover the subject-matter of insurance. If you are nicely conversant with these ideas, you will be in a better position in negotiating you insurance demands.

1. Insurable interest. This is the economic or monetary interest that the owner or possessor of property has in the topic-matter of insurance. The mere reality that it might be detrimental to him need to a loss occurred simply because of his economic stake in that assets offers him the capability to insure the home. Castellin Vs Preston 1886.

2. Umberima fadei. It means utmost great faith, this principle stated that the parties to insurance contract ought to disclose accurately and completely all the facts material to the threat becoming proposed. That is to say that the insured should make known to the insurer all details with regards to the risk to be insured (Looker Vs Law Union and Rock 1928). Likewise, the underwriter need to highlight and clarify the terms, situations and exceptions of the insurance policy. And the policy should be void of ‘small prints’.

3. Indemnity. It stated that following a loss, the insurer should guarantee that they placed the insured in the precise monetary position he enjoyed prior to the loss (Leppard Vs Excess 1930).

4. Contribution. In a situation where two or far more insurers is covering a particular danger, if a loss occurred, the insurers need to contribute towards the settlement of the claim in accordance with their rateable proportion.

5. Subrogation. It has usually been said that contribution and subrogation are corollary of indemnity, which means that these two principles operates so that indemnity does not fail. Subrogation operates primarily on motor insurance. When an accident occurred involving two or far more cars, there need to be tortfeasor(s) who is responsible for accident. On this basis, the insurer covering the policyholder who was not at fault can recover their outlay from the underwriter of the policyholder who is responsible for the incidence.

    I have an idea to start a business renting out unused private parking spaces it my local city center. I was wondering if anyone knew of any rules or regulations surrounding this. The basic idea is to rent a customers private space to people who may travel into the city every day.

    The 2 main things are:
    1. Can someone who owns a flat and therefore a corresponding parking space (possibly underground or other) rent it out it done legally?

    2. Obviously it can vary but speaking vaguely would someone else’s car be insured to park in that private space? Would they be covered my the management companies insurance for instances such as fire?

    I’m doing a display board at a secondary school on how maths can be used in the real world. I can find examples of this, but none that are applicable or simple enough for kids aged 11-16. Please help me come up with some basic ideas that kids might relate with… so how to get lots of money, how to be famous or things along those lines. I don’t really want anything on complicated stuff, because none of that is in their syllabus so they won’t know it. Thanks very much!!!
