We are one of the UK’s leading providers of Property Inspection Reports.
We can provide reports anywhere in the country either in person or now in an online report. Both are accepted by the UKBA and we have an enviable record in producing reports for people who obtain their visas.
It is a condition of UK immigration rules that any application made for residency be supported by proof that the Sponsor and Applicant have adequate accommodation.
This requirement applies to a wide category of visas such as Spousal Visas, Fiance/Marriage Visas and family dependents (such as Children, Parents, Grandparents) Visas.
Property Inspection Reports are the stipulated way to satisfy the authorities that this aspect of the regulations is met. They must be carried out by individuals who are suitably qualified to do so and they must be independent.
As one of the leading providers of reports across Britain and Northern Ireland we here at Immigration Property Reports have the satisfaction of helping reunite families settling in the UK.
But why is a Property Report Required?
The report is required to demonstrates to the authorities that the Applicant(s) will have not need to be re-housed once in the UK and so will not be a burden on the Exchequer.
The Home Office/UKBA must be satisfied that the Sponsor can accommodate the Applicant(s) in housing that 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.
The property report is, in most cases, a formality. However for those where some issues arise we can provide advice on what needs to be done in order to meet the criteria.
