What is a property inspection report?

The property inspection report is a supporting document in the visa application process. 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. This means the property will not be overcrowded and there are no public health and safety concerns. Our 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

HOUSING INSPECTION REPORT FOR UK 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.

Physical On-Site
Property Inspection

Surveyor visits your home to perform the housing inspection. This includes assessing for health and safety and measuring rooms to calculate permitted number of occupants. The physical inspection provides the most credible type of report.

Virtual Property Inspection Report

Sponsor provides key information, such as measurements of rooms and pictures for the surveyor to complete the assessment. Price starts from £99. Only suitable where the occupancy is low.

UK VISA ACCOMMODATION REQUIREMENTS IN 2024

The accommodation standards which must be met for the property to pass the inspection and 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).
