Immigration housing inspections for UK entry clearance

We can carry out inspections and supply confirmation to the British High Commission that accommodation is suitable for people looking to get entry clearance into the UK.

To supply the confirmation letter we will need to survey the property to establish that:

  • it meets the required standards
  • it would not become overcrowded by the person or persons wishing to enter the UK living or staying there

Our Housing Standards Team do the inspections and send the letter to the Immigration Authorities.

Please note we do not carryout inspections on properties which are outside of the District.

To apply for an inspection you will need to complete the immigration inspection application form (DOC/44KB/2 pages).

Please return the form to the Housing Standards team with a fee of £102 which is the current charge for this service. 

We will then contact you to arrange an inspection.
