If you have a mortgage, your lenders who've stumped up the money to buy your house may be a bit fussy and uppity if you haven't got any home buildings insurance, as they might worry that they'll not be able to sell the remains if it burns down. But if you own your home outright, you generally have a choice on whether to insure it or not. It's a gamble. You may choose to take the risk or to get the risk "bought off". One way to think about buildings insurance is to consider that as the homeowner you have an (un)lottery ticket which is the value of the building and contents. As with a positive lottery ticket on the National Lottery it's unlikely that the numbers will come up. But if the numbers come up on your (un)lottery ticket, you lose your home. Home Insurance companies will, for a sensible fee, take that (un)lottery ticket off you, so they are now gambling on it rather than you. The insurance companies are much better equipped for gambling on potential losses of buildings as they have a widely spread risk and can more easily afford to lose.

FLOODING RISK: There is a curious mistake in the matter of home insurance against flood. Because of the way a postcode or area is lumped together, you may find that even if your house is on top of a hill and will never flood, you may be uninsurable against flood because you are lumped-in with houses near the river at the bottom of the hill. If you find that's happening, I suggest you shop around. There are plenty of home insurance companies on this page, and some of them have better systems than others.
