Are we qualified to carry out the home inspection certificates for UK visa purposes?

When an application is made to the British High Commission for Entry Clearance into the United Kingdom, they request that you:

"Obtain an independent assessment of the number of rooms and occupants of the proposed accommodation. A report from a suitably qualified body certifying that a personal inspection has been carried out and giving details of accommodation inspected is usually acceptable for this purpose. Above all, the Entry Clearance officer must be satisfied that the accommodation will not become overcrowded within the definition of the Housing Act 1985 or that it will not contravene public health regulations."

We can confirm that we are an multi-award winning independent architectural surveying practice, we have been carrying out the home inspection certificates for the home office for many years.
