What is a housing report for visa?
The housing report for immigration purposes is essentially a supporting document that is sometimes submitted for certain UK entry clearance applications.. The housing report report demonstrates to the entry clearance officer that your accommodation meets the adequate housing standards stipulated by UKVI (United Kingdom Visa and Immigration). Our reports have a 100% acceptance and are recognised by UKVI.
Our housing reports for UK entry clearance visa applications are typically used for settlement visa cases which include: spouse, fiance, and family visas. The housing report 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.
Housing reports for visa may also be referred to as:
- Property Inspection Report
