Immigration: housing inspections & accommodation certificate

As part of your application for entry clearance into the United Kingdom, you may be asked to demonstrate that you can be adequately accommodated (within the meaning set out in the immigration rules) without recourse to public funds.

 

What is an immigration inspection and why do I need one?

As part of your application to UK Visas and Immigration, you may be asked to prove that you can be adequately accommodated within the meaning set out in the immigration rules. A key aspect of this will be to demonstrate that the property to which you are moving will not become statutorily overcrowded under Part X of the Housing Act 1985.

An accommodation inspection will assess whether the property would become statutory overcrowded if any more people were to move in. If the property meets the required standards then we will issue a confirmation letter which can be submitted in support of your application for entry clearance to UK Visas and Immigration. In addition to overcrowding the officer assessing the property will determine whether or not the property is in a good state of repair and free from any significant health and safety risks. 

How much does this service cost?

An inspection will cost £150 (inc VAT), if you choose to use Doncaster Council for this service. Please use the button below to contact us so we can take payment and arrange the inspection.
