Immigration inspections

If a family member is emigrating to the UK you may asked to provide a report about the place where they intend to live. The report should confirm the accommodation is suitable and not overcrowded. 

We provide a service where we inspect accommodation and issue a report. 


The cost for this service is £146.

Request an inspection

You can request and pay for an immigration inspection using our online form:

Request and pay for an immigration inspection

Following your request, an officer will contact you to arrange a time to inspect the property.

What happens at the inspection?

The officer will need to look round the whole property and will ask further details.

If you live in a rented property we will also ask to see gas and electrical safety certificates. Your landlord should be able to provide these for you. Your landlord will also need to agree to the immigration inspection request.

We aim to visit and provide you with your written report within 10 working days.
