What do our accommodation surveys cover?

Our surveys run to 4-5 pages in length and we have been producing accommodation reports for solicitors and local authorities and housing associations for many years and can always provide references if requested.

THE STATUTORY OVERCROWDING STANDARD

The United Kingdom Border Agency (UKBA) state that applications for a visa to the UK from outside the EEC contain evidence of the type of housing and its condition for the proposed accommodation.

As independent surveyors, HAD can inspect the accommodation and provide an Immigration Accommodation report that will fulfill the UKBA Immigration requirements.

We inspect the sponsors accommodation and write a report detailing the property layout, size of rooms, number of occupants, any defects etc. The accommodation inspection will involve our surveyor assessing that the property:

1) Is free from Category 1 and 2 Hazards under the Housing Act 2004,
2) Is in a reasonable state of repair,
3) Is not statutorily overcrowded under the Housing Act 1985, Part X and shall have sufficient space to accommodate both the current occupiers and the appicant.
4) Is free from conditions that may present a public health nuisance.

The following information will be required to support the inspection in order to process the Report:
1) Name, Sex, Date of Birth, Current address of the applicant
2) Name and address of the sponsor
3). Copy of a Tenancy Agreement or Proof of Ownership of the property
4) Name and Date of Birth of other occupants in the property to be inspected
