Update: 14/09/18

Finally took almost 3 months. They asked for more information twice. My only advice for those that use the Council Checking Service (CSC) is that to check every page they photocopy, they do make mistakes.

Thank you all for your invaluable help - moderators, users who got their decisions and sharing best practice, and all those patiently waiting! Good luck with your applications!
went to collect the BRP today. Once you get the HO approval letter, make sure to chase DX with on this number by providing your postcode, surname and first line of address. they always provide different and misleading info, so keep chasing them. Their number 0333 241 5700. If they say there is nothing, call again same day and ask, other person will tell different story. Also if your card is with them and you don't have calling card - find out which depot it is where they keep it and go with two bills as proof of address and your passport!

good luck everyone, marching on to next year!
