*Please note price match only applies to professional surveyors. This excludes estate agents, EPC assessors, immigration advisors as we do not recognise them as professional surveyors who have undergone a significant program of study to undertake such assessments. The Home Office guidance emphasises the assessment should be undertaken by a professional and states: "Obtain an independent assessment of the number of rooms and occupants of the proposed accommodation. A report from a suitably qualified body certifying that a personal inspection has been carried out and giving details of accommodation inspected is usually acceptable for this purpose. Above all, the Entry Clearance officer must be satisfied that the accommodation will not become overcrowded within the definition of the Housing Act 1985 or that it will not contravene public health regulations."

What is a property inspection report?

The property inspection report is a supporting document in the visa application process. Our report is tailored for entry clearance or settlement visa applications. The housing report provides strong evidence to the Home Office (UKVI) that an independent assessment has taken place of the accommodation and the property is considered adequate.


The property inspection report conveys to the immigration officer the accommodation is safe and fit for habitation and will not become overcrowded by the  addition of the visa applicant (s). SSG ensures  housing inspection reports are compliant with relevant housing legislation and the Home Office guidelines for adequate accommodation. Our housing inspection reports are frequently used to support the following visa applications:

- Spouse visa

- Fiancé visa

- Visitor visa

- Further Leave to Remain (FLRM) 

- Adult Dependent Relative Visa

- Unmarried Partner Visa


The housing inspection report can be completed by either a surveyor physically visiting the property or conducting a remote housing inspection. Both types of accommodation certificates are accepted by the Home Office. If you are unsure whether your property is suitable, please contact us.

The accommodation standards that must be met for the property to pass the inspection for an accommodation certificate to be issued are below:


  • The property must be safe, in a good state of repair and  not contravene public health regulations. We assess the property using the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) under the Housing Act 2004 to determine if there are any Category 1 or 2 hazards present.

  • The property does not share a bathroom or kitchen with another household - unless they are from the same family as the person(s) coming to the UK.

  • The property is owned or occupied exclusively by the sponsor/sponsor's family (the property is not suitable if it is shared with members of another family).

  •  A current gas safety certificate from the landlord (only for rented accommodation).

  • The property has sufficient space and will not become statutorily overcrowded  under the Housing Act 1985. We consider the rooms and occupants when determining if statutory overcrowding is present or will occur with the addition of the proposed occupant (s).

  • Valid EPC (Energy Performance Certificate), minimum rating E (only for rented accommodation).
