Hi Everyone

My mom will apply for family visitor's visa and I have got a question regarding accommodation requirement.

I am renting a 3 bedroom house from Council. I am paying full rent and not claiming any HB or CTB. I have got the tenancy agreement. In addition to tenancy agreement do I need the following?

1)- Permission letter from Council confirming my Mom can stay in the property during her visit.
2)- A Property inspection report

Thanks

There are no specific required documents. The UKBA website advises Family Visitors that one option for accommodation is to show that "you and any dependants will be supported and accommodated by relatives or friends". I advise collating documents that show you have the space and permission to accommodate your guests, and that if you are giving them free housing, you also show documents that demonstrate that you can afford to do so.

Hi
I got another question. I have asked an estate agent to prepare the property inspection report for me. He said home office will consider my accommodation over crowded because I got 5 family members with 3 bed room house (we only got 1 living room). Currently my house is occupied in this way
Room 1- myself, wife, and 3 month old baby boy
Room 2- son 3.5 years old, son 2 years old
Room 3- Available for my mom

Estate agent said that our 3 month old baby should have his own room which in result won't leave any space for my mom.

Is my Interpretation of http://www.ukba.home...g/maa/#header14 correct?

3 bed rooms - total people allowed 5

Myself = 1 person
My wife = 1 person
My 3.5 year old son = 0.5 person
My 2 year old son = 0.5 person
My 3 month old baby = 0 person
Total = 3 people

This mean I have one bedroom for my mom. Is this right?
Thanks a lot for your help.

These 'inspection reports' carry little weight. And clearly this person doesn't know the law. You should spend the money on getting an immigration advisor to help instead.
