Each asylum accommodation service provider is required to provide 5 days notice before inspecting a property.

Accommodation providers are contractually required to take account of any particular circumstances and vulnerability of those that they accommodate and ensure that safeguards are in place. Service users are fully briefed, in a language they will understand, about what will happen at an inspection and during any maintenance work. They are also provided with a written copy of this information.
