Made application on the 1st, they received it on the 2nd. The money is still in my account, how long does it usually take? Seems a bit odd, they are usually very fast to take the money.

Don't worry. Some banks I think show the payments a bit late
Fingers crossed it's all looking good. Hopefully home office will process it soon.

I know, its extremely frustrating to see other people who applied after me, getting their money taken of them. I hope this doesnt mean my application will be processed slower. Its now the 11th, im wondering if calling them will make a difference, or should i just wait?

Just a quick question for everyone who has already had their fees deducted...did you check numerous times throughout the day & then notice the sudden drop or was the fee taken over night?

I can answer - checked the account all the time while awake (first thing in the morning, last thing at night!), then suddenly the number reduced by £874 this morning.
