Immigration Accommodation Report & Entry Clearance Reports

London, Lancashire, Yorkshire

 

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

Are we qualified to carry out the housing inspection reports 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 housing inspection reports for the home office for many years.
