A few assessors ask, the vast majority do not. It's you house and they are a visitor so it is entirely up to you whether you allow access to other areas or not.

Have a look at the PIP claim guide there is a section at the back that cover the assessment and the questions you are likely to be asked.

I find it worrying that they can force an assessment at home without it being requested. How common is this? My home is my safe space, strangers do not get passed the door for any reason.

Nobody is forcing anything, if you are offered a home assessment then you can request that it is moved to one of the Assessment Providers offices.
