Same documents will be needed along with decree absolute & new marriage certificate. And most importantly your new marriage must have been performed after the date of decree absolute.

You will have to show the source of cash saving and also have to deposit all cash income into bank account. With £40k you will need to earn around (40000-16000/2.5= 9600) (18600-9600)

£9000

Have you declared your 'cash in hand' earnings to HMRC and paid all tax due on the income :?:

You will have to declare the source of cash savings and usually savings through loans won't be considered.

They won't raise such.

You should be aware, though, that the first £16,000 of any cash savings will be disregarded.

No if you can prove your subsisting relationships through visiting, chatting, calling, transferring money, sending gifts etc.

If the financial requirement will be met through employment then it won't be mattered.

House inspection report (if sharing with none-related adults) and the landlord's noc will be needed.

No as everything has been transformed into online. In my view opinion even instead printing the BRP card there should be an app introduced. :idea:
