What needs to be within a Report?
As part of the UK Entry Clearance requirements, the UK Border Agency requires an assessment of the intended accommodation prior to arrival to the UK. Such an assessment should be undertaken by a qualified body and a report/certificate is issued to indicate if the property will become overcrowded within the definition of the Housing Act 1985 and will not contravene public health regulations. HAD are building and property experts, we satisfy the UK Border Agency’s requirements as a qualified body (insured) to prepare a comprehensive report confirming the status of the proposed accommodation’s housing standards.

What happens if I need another copy of my Report?
If a replacement letter, ammendments or an additional letter is needed, HAD will provide you with an additional/replacement copy for a fee of £10 (which will be sent by Royal Mail First Class Delivery). It is worth noting that the letter will not be re-dated, and will be a copy of the original letter issued. If a re-dated letter is needed, this will require a new application for a report. Please note that the UK Border Agency will not accept reports that are greater than 12 weeks old.

Multiple inspections in the same geographical area and from the same company/individual can be discounted.

Which areas of the UK are covered?
We can carry out inspections throughout England and Wales, including London, Manchester, Lancashire, Yorkshire areas. Please contact us to discuss a quotation.

What happens if my property does not meet the housing standards?
If the dwelling does not meet the requirements of the UK Border Agency, HAD will issue a report for ‘unsatisfactory’ housing conditions for the purposes of Entry Clearance into the UK. Within the unsatisfactory report, we will inform the applicant/sponsor of the reasons why an unsatisfactory accommodation report has been issued. If the matters arising, noted within the unsatisfactory report are resolved, we will re-inspect the property.
