Hi zonkkk, I guess it depends on the circumstances or the caseworker.
In my case, he sent me an e-mail yesterday because he was missing a last info before approving the application. I replied this morning and half an hour later he replied back sending via e-mail the letter he was about to post confirming the successful outcome and details of the documents being returned to me.

Hi zonkkk, I applied for registration as BC using form UKM (born to British mother before 1983).
I live in Switzerland but in the form I asked to organise the ceremony in the Uk.
The case worker wrote saying that he was ready to approve my application but needed to know if I was sure I wanted my ceremony in the UK. He explained pros and cons and given the circumstances I decided for a ceremony abroad. Answered back next morning and about half hour later he replied with the official approval letter via e-mail. Same letter will accompany my documents which are in the process of being returned to me. :-)

Hi I just have a few quick questions, any help would be greatly appreciated. I am due to apply for my naturalisation application and have realised that the fees goes up on the 6th, now does the new fee of £1005 include the ceremony fee as well?

Also, in regards to the referees for the application, can I use my partner as one of my referees? does it matter that we live at the same address? Or shall we put his work address?

Thanks a lot.

Yes.

No. Please see page 20 of the AN form.

Hi

Thanks for your reply! Just wanted to clarify I am not including my boyfriend in the application as hes already a British citizen. He just lives with me and after reading what's on page 20 again, I am thinking I should be able to use him as it doesn't say anywhere you can't use anyone who lives at the same address as you?!

I wouldn't list your boyfriend as a referee, as he could easily be seen as someone closely related to you (as you are living at the same address, and thereby could be seen to be in a relationship akin to marriage when it comes to immigration). But that is my personal opinion. The same question appears to have been raised by others too...
