HAD will undertake inspections of properties in support of an application to the UK Border Agency for entry visas. The independent property assessment will be conducted under the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS). 1. Where on the Home Office or UKVI website does it state that a housing report is required for UK Entry Clearance Visa and Settlement applications? Please refer to page 3 under ‘Accommodation details’ in Home Office/UKVI Guide to supporting documents: settlement in the link below. An Independant property report proves that ‘‘Obtained 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.’’ 2. How long do the reports last? UKVI guidelines regarding property inspection report state that they will not accept a report that is older than 12 weeks/ 3 months.

9. Why does the Home Office/UKVI/UKBA require a property inspection report for immigration purposes? It is important to demonstrate that the Applicant or Applicants will have no further need to be re-housed once in the UK. The Sponsor needs to provide evidence that they have the funds to maintain and accommodate the applicant without recourse to public funds. The Home Office/UKVI/UKBA needs to be fully satisfied that the Sponsor can accommodate the Applicants in a property that will not become statutorily overcrowded under the provisions of Part X of the Housing Act 1985 and is safe and fit for human habitation under Part 1 of the Housing Act 2004. 10. What do you check during the accommodation inspection? We measure every part of the property you occupy (if in shared accommodation we do not ask for access to other tenants rooms) to ensure the property will not become statutorily overcrowded under Part X of the Housing Act 1985 and has sufficient space to accommodate both the current occupiers and any additional people who propose to live there after UK entry clearance or settlement is granted.

11. What information do you require from me? We will ask for the following: - Name of the sponsor - DOB of sponsor -Name of Applicant - DOB of applicant - Which country they are applying from - Current residents of the property - Is your property owned or rented -If rented a tenancy agreement - If owned proof of this

3. How long will my visit take? A typical immigration property inspection will last 20-30 minutes. In this time the surveyor will make an assessment of your residence, check your details. 4. What if I have to cancel the appointment? Please let us know 24 hours prior to the appointment. 5. How long will the whole process take?
