Housing Reports

When applying to the British High Commission for Entry Clearance into the UK you may be asked to provide a Housing Report. This is mainly to establish that the accommodation you are proposing to live in during you stay in the UK is of the required standard, will not become overcrowded when you start living there, and will not violate any public health regulations.

The official wording reads as follows:

"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."

Five Star International provide a comprehensive Housing Report service which is tailored to your individual requirements, and which will provide you with the assurances that are required for UK Entry Clearance. We are very familiar with the relevant legislation, and can offer you a wealth of practical advice and recommendations.

In order to assess the property we will obviously need to schedule a visit, and after conducting a survey of the property we will be able to let you know whether it will be suitable for your application. If it is suitable, then we can provide the certificate required for your application.

Remember that with the 'spouse of family' application the property must be for the sole use of you and your family - and not shared with members of another family.
