  • Do you need a housing report or property inspection report for a UK spouse visa in 2022/2023

    Do you need a housing report or property inspection report for a UK spouse visa in 2022? In this article we are going to explore whether you should submit a housing report or a UKVI Property Inspection report for the following types of visa applications: UK Spouse visa FLR(M) Visa UK Fiance visa UK Unmarried partner visa. This article will touch upon the following topics: ​ What is a UK Housing report or UKVI property inspection report? Do you actually need a housing report? How much does a housing report cost? What is considered an overcrowded house? What is a UK Housing report or UKVI property inspection report? The Housing Report (property inspection report) essentially supports your UK immigration visa application. This is the only document that proves an independent accommodation assessment has taken place to the entry clearance officer and the accommodation relied upon is considered adequate. ​ “Who can perform a Housing Report?” ​ Housing reports for the purposes of immigration are usually undertaken by surveyors who are appropriately qualified and affiliated with a professional body. In our case the resident surveyor holds an Msc in Environmental Health and is a member of the Charted Institute of Environmental Health. Estate agent reports have little value as they are not well rehearsed in housing legislation and the immigration requirement. Moreover, in most cases they are not registered with a professional body and have no professional accountability. Do you actually need a housing report? Should the accommodation being relied upon by the applicant fall within the following categories: ​ - Owned by sponsor - Rented by Sponsor - Accommodation provided by family - Accommodation provided by friends (rent free) ​ It is highly recommended a property inspection is submitted with the application. ​ There are compelling reasons why you should seriously consider having a housing report for the immigration application. ​ Reason number 1 for having a housing report ​ 1. Evidencing adequate accommodation is expected by the Home Office, please see Appendix FM-Family members. Section E-ECP 3.4 states : ​ "The applicant must provide evidence that there will be adequate accommodation, without recourse to public funds, for the family, including other family members who are not included in the application but who live in the same household, which the family own or occupy exclusively: accommodation will not be regarded as adequate if- ​ (a) it is, or will be, overcrowded; or (b) it contravenes public health regulations." ​ Clearly, the Housing Report is the only document that demonstrates that the accommodation is adequate. ​ Reason n umber 2 for having a housing report ​ As an environmental consultancy who specialises in property inspection reports for immigration. We regularly engage with customers who feel that having a housing reports bring them peace of mind knowing they have done everything to meet the adequate accommodation requirement. How much does a housing report cost? The cost of a housing report is generally between £70-160. However, this price can vary depending on the location. We are also able to provide online property inspection reports for £99 where a physical inspection is not possible. ​ Booking a housing report is a relatively straight forward process: ​ 1. Fill in the GET IN TOUCH contact form and we will give you a callback or email you with a price after consultation. ​ 2. Provisional booking slots for on-site inspections will be held for 24 hours only. The booking has a confirmed status once payment clears or the booking form is submitted and accepted. ​ 3. Both the virtual property inspection & on-site inspection can be booked by completing the booking form which also processes payment. What is considered an overcrowded house? Scientific Services Group LTD has developed an online calculator which can be used on desktop to give you an idea if your house is overcrowded or will be with the addition of the applicant (s) entering the UK. This tool is particularly useful prior to booking an online housing report.
