Immigration inspections

People moving from outside the UK into the Hambleton area may need to confirm to UK Border Control that they are moving into suitable, uncrowded accommodation. Normally, someone acts as a sponsor to the person moving into the area, and they will be asked by the immigration authority for an independent assessment.

We can carry out an inspection and assess whether the property

  • provides safe and healthy accommodation under the Housing Act 2004
  • is in a reasonable state of repair
  • has sufficient space so as not to be over-crowded to accommodate the current and proposed occupiers.

An immigration inspection and report costs £100.00 - you need to pay this fee before you can arrange a date and time for the inspection.
