Void as Voidable
The majority of jurisdictions hold that a breach of policy does not render the policy void absolutely, but only voidable. Affirmative action is required by the insurer when the option to void a policy arises. The insurer must act with reasonable promptness after discovering grounds for voiding the policy to cancel the policy for breach of condition.
