What is Overcrowding Report for immigration?
A property inspection report is an independent report prepared by a qualified professional for entry clearance or settlement visa application to establish that after the arrival of the applicant the accommodation will not be overcrowded and is suitable for living under the UK Housing Act 1985.
The Housing Act 1985 contains statutory definitions of overcrowding in residential housing. A house is considered to be overcrowded if 2 persons aged 10 years or more of opposite sexes, who are not living together as husband and wife, must sleep in the same room. The Act also details the maximum number of people allowed for a given number of rooms or a given room floor area.
