Housing inspection report for spouse visa

We conduct housing inspection reports for UK immigration entry clearance applications. Under the family immigration routes, applicants must show that their accommodation is 'adequate'. This means the proposed accommodation must be safe and will not become overcrowded with the spouse entering the UK  and living at the property.

We frequently perform housing inspections for spouse visa and further leave to remain extensions. The housing report for spouse visa demonstrates your property meets the required housing standards stipulated by UKVI (United Kingdom Visa and Immigration).  

Property inspection reports may also be referred to as:

- Accommodation Certificate

- UKVI Property Inspection

- Housing Survey 

- Immigration Housing Report

- Immigration Housing Survey Report

The accommodation certificate is drafted by surveying the house and assessing the below criteria:

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

  • Ensure the property is safe, in a good state of repair and there are no public health and safety contraventions.

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

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