In the name of Allah the most gracious the most merciful

The answer to your question is follows:

Insurance is based on interest and gambling which are Haram in Islam. Therefore, in normal condition, it is not allowed to get the car and house insured. Nevertheless if it is legally required then car insurance is allowable due to compulsion.
