This means that both parties to the insurance contract must act fairly and in good faith towards each other and not do anything that will rob the other of the benefits promised by the insurance contract.
Without the covenant of good faith and fair trade and ethical people working in the insurance industry who apply and fulfill the covenant, insurance is impossible. One cannot act fairly and in good faith without being a person with a well-formed ethical compass.
Carter v. Boehm S.C. 1 Bl. Burr 1906, May 11, 1766. 593, 3 Lord Mansfield of the British House of Lords stated: "Good faith forbids one of the parties by concealing what he knows privately, drawing the other to a bargain, from his ignorance of the fact and his believe the opposite. “Insurers, when deciding whether to insure or not to insure a risk, rely on the information that the insured provides them. As Lord Mansfield instructed, the insured must provide the requested information honestly and in good faith.
The implied covenant states that no party to an insurance contract should do anything to deprive the other of the benefits of the contract.
The implied covenant on good faith and fair trade imposes obligations not only in respect of claims from a third party but also in the interests of the insured. When the insurer unreasonably and in bad faith withholds the payment of the insured's claim, it is liable for damages. In order for the insurer to fulfill its obligation not to impair the insured's right to receive the benefits in the contract, it must again take into account at least as much the latter's interests as it does for its own.
