What is a property inspection report?

We provide property inspection reports for the purposes of immigration. The accommodation certificate is typically used as a supporting document in various visa applications which includes: spouse, fiancé, visitor and unmarried partner visa. It is the only document that highlights an independent assessment has taken place of your accommodation to the entry clearance officer and the accommodation is adequate.  

The property inspection report is provided by surveying the house and assessing below areas:

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

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

  • Checks 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.
