Uberrimae Fidei Law and Legal Definition

Uberrimae fidei is a Latin phrase meaning "utmost good faith" (literally, "most abundant faith"). Uberrimae fidei contracts are made in utmost good faith. There is no concealment or deception in such contracts. If one of the parties to a contract has a special knowledge, he/she must disclose such knowledge relevant to the contract. Although all contracts are to be made in utmost good faith, insurance contracts are very strict in this regard. Failure to disclose these facts will make the contract voidable.
