During the visit we will interview the Claimant or, where appropriate, a close family relative, carer or guardian to help understand their needs in relation to their particular disability, personal circumstances, and details of their current and future accommodation needs, including the needs of other family members.
We will carry out a measured survey of the property when appropriate. To do this it will be necessary to access all areas, both within the property and outside. From the survey, a plan is produced for inclusion in the Accommodation report. This plan will help to demonstrate the challenges the Claimant may face in their home. We will also photograph the property. This is done to assist in the production of the plan and a number of photographs, normally a dozen or so, will be included in the report to help illustrate areas of the home. All information gathered during the visit is treated in the strictest confidence and disclosed only to the instructing solicitor.
