Final document check

Thank you to everyone who has contributed in this thread. I just wanted to do a final document check before we go to the Visa centre tomorrrow. I would like particular attention to the dates of documents that show proof of cohabitation over last 2.5 years - are they spaced out evenly enough?

Wife visa expiry: 31/12/18

Mandatory documents

- mine and my wife's passports
- my signed declaration

Other documents

- mine and my wife's signed contracts of employment
- mine and my wife's letters from respective employers

- my printed bank statements from Mar - Dec (these are online version as paper copies have not come through depsite ordering 2 weeks ago, so had to print online and get stamped in branch)
- my payslips from Mar - Nov (I've been in employment longer but wanted to match bank statements)
- my P60

- wife's posted bank statements from May - Dec
- wife's payslips from May - Nov (she started her job in May, was unemployed prior to that)

- wife's Masters degree certificate taught at University in the UK
- wife's Life in UK test pass letter
- my passport again for proof of settled status in the UK
- wife's current BRP

- latest utility bills for evidence of monthly housing costs

Proof of cohabitation

10 documents in total (2 joint, 8 individual):

1. Council tax bill 2017-18 in Joint Names
2. Council tax bill 2018-19 in Joint Names

3. Wife's NHS letter June 2016 (will this be accepted as part of 2.5 years??)
4. Wife's mobile bill Dec 2016
5. Wife's mobile bill Dec 2017
6. Wife's HMRC letter Sep 2018

7. My gas bill July 2016
8. My gas bill Sep 2016
9. My water bill Nov 2017
10. My electricity bill May 2018

Other documents

- our marriage certicate
- signed mortgage acceptance form

Thanks,
SoS
Can anyone confirm if these documents are sufficient? Do I need a cover letter to explain why the bank statements are printed and stamped? Also, is my proof of cohabitation documents spaced evenly enough?

Just want to make sure everything is there for tomorrow.

I don’t think you will need a cover letter from bank explaining why stamped, I am doing the same and not providing any cover letter.

Great, I won't add one then.

Do you reckon I am missing any documents?

It looks good to me… I would just recommend providing more than less.. so if there are any other correspondence throw in a couple more.
I have a slightly more complicated case where we moved houses three times in the last 2.5 years. Only because we were waiting for our house to finish building... i’ve provided about 12 pieces of correspondence (6 each) and anything joint we have ( mortgage, council bill).. however those two are going to be placed in both the evidence of housing costs !! I was organized until I started filling out the online form !!
Best of luck tomorrow and please do keep us posted

Just wanted to say a big thank you to CR001 and allyf for the help and advice.

We (finally!) submitted yesterday. Our experience of the service centre was not pleasant. Took close to 4hrs to go through the whole process. This was due to too many appointments and not enough staff. To their credit, the staff never got grumpy and showed a lot of patience.

Thankfully it's all done, now just have to cross fingers and wait for the decision.

Why are you sending your marriage certificate? My online application list does not ask for that...

My didn't too. I included as just an extra document as evidence of our marriage date/location as there were questions related to it on the form.

You don't have to include if you don't think it is necessary.

Once you fill the online application, at the end, it gives you a link to download the template (It has 3 parts) for verification checks. You have to sign it accordinngly if only part 1 is relevant to you or part 2 and 3 also. Then you can upload it later.

Kindly start your own topic on Set O or continue in one you have rather than tagging onto this users thread which is only about ILR based on Set M, which has completely different requirements and rules to Set O applications.
