    We were strongly advised to submit notice to quit in addition to title. We submitted this and all the other documentation at the same time to be scanned at the Visa Application centre in Causeway Bay. I understand that the offices issuing proof of title at present in UK are working very slowly thanks to Covid - good luck!

    Thanks Geraldo!! How did you answer the question on the online form?

    "Does anyone else, other than [Sponsor] and their dependants, live at this property?"

    Did you put your tenants details down or answered "no", provided the latter is answered with reference to post-tenant move out?

    I'm pretty sure I entered "No" and referred to the accompanying letter I attached explaining our circumstances.

    Thanks!! May I ask, how far along are you now with the application process?

    We applied in May last year (2019) and my wife's passport complete with her spouse visa was delivered to our address in HK about 3 months later.
    We're now living in London.

    Great stuff. Did you use an agency to help with the application or did you do this on your own?

    Those with spouses from non-western countries might find things a bit easier now.

    Maybe

    We used British Connections who were helpful - but, to be frank, we could have done It ourselves, especially if you log on to the Facebook UK Spouse Visa webpages - just about every question you ask is answered using their referencing system. The good news is that, provided you systematically wade through, and meet, all the requirements, the ECO (Entry Clearance Officer) has to grant the visa.
