We have taken over the right to manage (RTM), but the landlord insists that they continue to insure the building. Is this correct?

No. Your RTM company has taken over the management functions of the landlord (and any management company that might have been in place). The management functions include the insurance of the building. However the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 specifically provides that the landlord is entitled to arrange additional insurance at their own expense.

You are likely to require the services of a solicitor and a managing agent.
