Is buildings insurance compulsory?

If you are buying your own home, buildings insurance is usually a condition imposed by your mortgage lender. Most mortgage lenders will insist that this cover is in place at the time of completion or exchange of contracts. It will cover you for the cost of rebuilding your house if it is damaged or destroyed.
