If you’re taking part in the Homes for Ukraine scheme as a sponsor, we will visit your property to make sure that the accommodation is fit for purpose and suitable to receive guests.

We will arrange the required premises checks when the Home Office notify us of hosting arrangements. We are only notified of these details once a visa has been issued; due to the late provision of guidance there is a backlog of checks. Premises checks are not a requirement for a visa to be issued.

If you’re a sponsor, you can contact us about getting your property inspected by emailing refugee.support@merton.gov.uk
