Insurers will allow you just to insure the contents of your home. This is usually on a new for old basis and cover can be extended to cover you for accidental damage if required.
Will I get a discount for a policy which covers the buildings and contents?
Most insurers prefer to cover the buildings and contents under a single policy and will a give a discount to you for this. Usually, the recommended way to insure your home because in the event of a loss the settlement of the claim is easier if a single insurer is dealing with both the buildings and contents insurance.

Insurers will allow you to cover items away from the home e.g. cameras, bikes and small items of jewellery this cover will be limited and is not suitable for high-value items.
