How the service works

We'll visit your home and inspect it in line with the Housing Health and Safety Rating System. We'll check for statutory overcrowding in line with part X of the Housing Act 1985, based on how many people will be living at the property.

If the find that the property will be overcrowded, we will not be able to support the application.

As long as the property has no Category 1 hazards and would not be overcrowded, we will write a letter addressed to the appropriate British high commission or embassy. This letter will be sent to you so that you can include it in your application.

If your home has a Category 1 hazard, the supporting letter will not be sent until the hazard is addressed. We'll then visit again to confirm that the works have been completed and if they have, we will send you the letter.
