property Inspection Report

What is a property inspection report?

The property inspection report for UK immigration is required for certain entry clearance applications. This is the only document that proves an independent assessment has taken place of your accommodation to the entry clearance officer and the accommodation is adequate.


Adequate accommodation is a mandatory requirement in the immigration rules to join a partner, parent, dependent child or as an dependent relative in the  UK. This includes spouse and fiancé visa applications. Our housing inspection reports for UK entry clearance are recognised and accepted by UKVI (UK Visa & Immigration).


Our housing reports are most frequently requested for spouse visa and fiancé visa. However, they are also used for family visitor visas and dependent visa applications.

Property inspection reports may also be referred to as:

- Accommodation Certificate
- UKVI Property Inspection
- Housing Survey 
- Immigration Housing Report
- Immigration Housing Survey Report
- Immigration Report UK

An accommodation certificate from Scientific Services Group LTD proves to the entry clearance officer that you meet the accommodation housing standards.  This well-structured report allows you to meet the accommodation test and enhances the prospect of your visa being granted.

The property inspection report is drafted after surveying the property and assessing the below:

  • The number of rooms and occupants of the proposed accommodation.

  • Property is safe, in a good state of repair and doesn't pose a health and safety risk.

  • Checking whether the property would become overcrowded if more people move in.

Following the housing survey, we will provide a property inspection report which is valid for 12 weeks.
