3. Over insurance

When the amount for which a subject matter is insured is more than its actual value, it is called Over insurance.


Explanation:

Over insurance is an insurance condition of excessive availability of coverage that it exceeds the actual cash value of the risk or property insured.

Over insurance becomes a risk for the insurance company because the insurers may be tempted to make a false claim of making a loss.
