I have applied BC on 26/4/2018 and have not get any update from home office and its already 10 months over. I sent several emails to home office and every time they replied as follows:
"as I am sure you are aware, naturalisation is not an automatic process and we have to make number of enquiries befog we can reach a decision on whether to grant citizenship. one of the requirements for naturalisation, set out in the nationality law, concern good character. Character is nit defined and fairly board view has to be taken when judging whether this requirements has beeb satisfied.
As part of Application process, the home office routinely conducts checks with other government departments and external agencies. The Extent and kengthof time taken to complete the checks varies according to the particular circumstance of each application. the process of these checks is regularly monitored.
So far, the checks have not been completed with regard to your application. As soon as we are in a position to reach a decision we will notify you accordingly."
I am just stressing out because this long delay. all of my friends who applied after me they got approval with in 3 months.
Experts please provide some ideas or advice i.e:
1. is it any reason, they hold my application?
2. Shall I contact with local MP to involve with this issue? or get a help from a legal representative?
3. will I send a pre-action protocol for this?
See OPs circumstance in link below.

I came uk in May 2007 as a student and till March 2013 was PSW visa. Then I applied in time application for business entrepreneurs visa which was refused and I appealed. The appeal was exhausted in February 2015. After exhausting the appeal(according to old rules) within 28 days,I applied Tier 2 and tier 2 approved. In April 2017 ILR was granted long residence route in same day service.
I haven't breach the immigration rules past 10 years or no conviction or CCJ/ driving offences, no debts as well.
I just applied naturalisation application through NCS End of April 2018.
Do you think these can be reason for delaying?

Hi, just want to ask which application you have made, and you are waiting still?
Did you email them again and got any reply ?
