Default Property Inspection Report - South West London

Afternoon all,

After nearly 8 long months of collating documents and trawling this forum, we only have 2.5 weeks left until we become eligible

I have just moved into the flat that my Aussie boyfriend will be (fingers crossed!) moving into and the only document I have left to sort out is the inspection report (I am renting with a friend).

My local council were more than useless so I am currently trying to find an independent surveyor to carry out the report.

So far, only one has come back to me. He has quoted 200+VAT and has advised:

"I would be pleased to carry out a survey of your property and provide a report for immigration purposes. I have done these before, preparing a short report on my headed paper, to say that the accommodation is sufficient for the people specified."

Does this sound about right? 'A short report'? Should there be photographs included or a floorplan? Is 200 about right?

Any feedback on this would be appreciated - as well as any recommendations for surveyors in SW London!

Thanks!

No photos or floor plan but they measured up all the rooms and were very thorough and professional. The report was quite lengthy

Hi Hertsfem,

Just to say I had the inspection carried out this week by the company you recommended - they were fantastic! Thanks so much for your help

It was 145 due to the London location; this was a steal compared to the 200+VAT I was quoted from someone who had seemingly no idea what I really required!

The gentleman who carried out the inspection knew all about the process and exactly what was needed.

Thank you again for the recommendation - very much appreciated!
