I took out a normal policy and paid in full for the whole year. Due to a house move I cancelled it 3 months later. They charged me £20 admin fee and refunded the remaining cover. I then took out a new policy with Barclays and they are going to pay me the £20 admin fee.

We once used Direct Line for 3 months only.

We had short term insurance when our house was empty. We had bought it but gutted it before we moved in which took around 7 months. I'm pretty sure the company was called Tower something. I'll have a look through some paper work to see if I can find anything with their name on.

I haven't seen any short term insurance but could you not just take a policy out for a year, pay by DD and then cancel it when you don't need it any more. You'll have to pay a small penalty (usually 2 months interest, which never works out as much) but at least you'll be covered or can move it to a new property.

Does anyone know if I can get house (buildings and content) for 6 months only?
