Property Inspection report for spouse visa - York

Scientific Services Group Ltd is an environmental consultancy that specialises in property inspection reports for immigration purposes. We are now able to offer property inspection reports in York and the surrounding area. The accommodation certificate produced by us allows the sponsor to evidence an independent accommodation assessment has taken place of their accommodation to the entry clearance officer and the accommodation is adequate. The immigration inspection report for York costs £150.00. The Home office recognise and accepts our  reports. We commonly do housing inspection reports for spouse visa and  vista visa applications.

The property inspection  roughly takes 30 minutes, during the housing survey we look at the 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.

Our surveyor will use a laser measuring tool to measure the rooms. Following an inspection, we will provide a report which is valid for 12 weeks. Our fees are considerably lower than York council. We offer a far more customer orientated service with quicker turnaround of your report.


FAQ - Property inspection report

Does the fee include the housing inspection and the report?

Yes  it's all inclusive in the £130 charge.

What type of property inspection report does the Home Office accept?

The Home office requires the housing report to be obtained from an independent company and the person performing the inspection to be suitably qualified. Scientific Services Group LTD is staffed by an environmental health practitioner who is registered with CIEH.

What's the qualification of the person surveying and writing the report?

All reports and house surveys are performed by our resident environmental consultant who has an MSc in Environmental Health and is a member of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.

What if my property does not pass the property inspection report?

The environmental consultant will highlight the hazards identified in the report and remedial work that needs to be done. A re-inspection can be scheduled afterward for a discounted price. In the case of overcrowding, the environmental consultant will explain the legislation and how the contravention has occurred.

I am renting and do not have a valid EPC can I get a property inspection report?

Unfortunately, we would not be able to offer a property inspection report if there is not a valid EPC. As its a legal requirement for the landlord to have a valid EPC with a minimum E rating before renting out the property. The property would be in contravention of national legislation and may also suggest there is also a hazard present under the HHSRS framework, most notably excess cold.
