Hi there, ermm the letter was dated 02/10/2015 but I did send a self addressed envelope. And no, they didnt call any of the referees. I think the two referees are just for formalities you know. Thank you and feel free to ask anymore questions and good luck :). Hopefully you have your approval soon

Congratulations! Another August approval yaaay! We are getting there. Latest one is just 6 days before I sent in my children's applications. Hopefully they are getting on top of that backlog now.

Updated with APPROVAL. This came much faster than I had ever anticipated.

Have only received the letter from the Home Office, and not the local council yet.

Best of lucky to everyone still waiting.
