Guidance For Online Property Inspection Report
Our online property inspection reports are accepted by UKVI and replicate the physical inspection as much as possible. Our price for an online report starts from £80 (currently on special offer) for this type of report. The stages involved are as follows:
1. Consultation with us
2. Booking Form & Payment
3. Prior to the inspection you can check the maximum number of people that can live in your house by using our interactive mobile overcrowding calculator. This is to be used as a guide only. Alternatively, you can use our more detailed desktop overcrowding calculator if you are working on a laptop.
4. Enter data relating to your property ie occupancy and dimensions of the property via an online portal (My Property Inspection). If you feel you may struggle with taking dimensions we can recommend a laser measuring device and this can be posted out to you (subject to an additional fee - £40).
5. Upload required documents through the Property Inspection portal if you are renting. This will include the Tenancy Agreement and Gas Safety Certificate.
6. Email pictures of the property to email@example.com. These pictures may include the following:
The external facade of the property
Picture of living room/dining room and bedrooms
The photos are for the assessor to determine if there are any health and safety risks. They may not necessarily be used in the actual report.
7. If considered necessary by the assessor an appointment will be arranged for a virtual inspection. This will be undertaken via a video call. You will provide the assessor with a walking tour of the house using your phone during a video call. The assessor needs to be confident there are no health and safety concerns.
Measuring the Room
We are seeking approximate dimensions of the rooms. Although, it may come as second nature to our surveyors we appreciate this maybe difficult if you have not done it before. Please see video below as a guide.
The assessor will conduct background checks on the property utilising public databases if required.
Alternatively, if you are having problems completing the online portal to submit the information you are able to use the word document attached below.
