Type of dwelling in form 40SP

Hi all,

I am sponsoring my husband's spouse visa (subclass100 and 309). Currently, I live in a rented accomodation (more like a paying guest.. living with a family). The family live in ground floor and I live in first floor.

I will be renting a house on my own when my husband migrate to Australia.

What should I answer in
Q 41 Type of dwelling- house/flat/other;

Q42 How many bedrooms does the family have?
They have 10 bedrooms in the house (It is a huge house!!)
Should I answer "10"?

Q43 What is the relationship of these people to you?
The family is the owner of the house. Should I answer "House owner"?

Q46 Will the person you are sponsoring be living with you?
Yes, ofcourse. But not in the house that I am living now.

I am worried about answering these questions

Anyone encountered same problem? any insight or suggestions will be much appreciated. Thank you.

Hi There,

As you have no way of knowing the answers to a future prospective home with your partner, you need to answer these questions based on your current accomodation, and then in your personal statment (stat dec) talk about your plans to relocate into your own place when he arrives.

Q 41 Type of dwelling- house/flat/other; Only you know the answer to this question - and you have already mentioned that it is a huge house. Ask yourself, do you live in a house or apartments? If you have your own self contained place with your own entry and kitchen/bathroom in your space, you live in a flat or apartment. If you share the facilities with the other occupants, its a house.

Q42 How many bedrooms does the family have?
They have 10 bedrooms in the house (It is a huge house!!)
Should I answer "10"? Of course you should answer 10 if you live in a house with 10 bedrooms.

Q43 What is the relationship of these people to you?
The family is the owner of the house. Should I answer "House owner"? House owner or landlord is sufficient if you are not related or friends with them...

Q46 Will the person you are sponsoring be living with you?
Yes, ofcourse. But not in the house that I am living now. As mentioned you need to fill in the form based on your current accomodation. When your partner arrives, he will need to live with you in this house while you seek a new home for the two of you for a period of time. Mention your intentions in your personal statement, do not answer "no" here...it will confuse DIAC becuase they will not understand why you are sponsoring your husband to come to Australia and not live with you.

Hi SAgirl -

Have a look through this thread that tackles the same sort of question. Mark (a registered migration agent) suggests answering with how you will be living in Aus and clarifying that with a note.

I was in exactly same situation. I think you got answer for first 2 Qs, for the third one (Q46), I believe there is a text box area provided, and i mentioned in that textbox that once my spouse will be in Australia, I will rent a new apartment.

Thank you for the helpful reply Kmarees1986, Whitney and Tara.jett

I went through Mark's advise and as you all mentioned, I will add an extra note in the additional information page that I will be renting a house on our own before my husband migrate to Australia.

I have one more doubt and I hope that you all will be able to help me out.

In both forms 47SP and 40 SP, there is this question "When did you and the visa applicant commit to a shared life together to the exclusion of all others?". We dont know what date to mention. Because, we are in a relationship from 2008, but we met only in 2011, got married in 2013. All these years, we didnt live together because I was and I am studying in Australia and he was studying and now working in Malaysia.

Should we mention our wedding date for the question?

Also "Since you and the visa applicant committed to a shared life together to the exclusion of all others, have you lived separately and apart for any periods or time?"

We are very confused with the above 2 questions. any advise that you could help me with?

Thank you again

Hi there,

"When did you and the visa applicant commit to a shared life together to the exclusion of all others?"
I think you can put the date that both of you decided to get married. I imagine that date most probably would be the date he proposed to you?

"Since you and the visa applicant committed to a shared life together to the exclusion of all others, have you lived separately and apart for any periods or time?"
I think you have lots of explaination to do here as you are living apart for long period. I'm in the similar situation and I have decided to postpone my application so that I can gather somemore evidence.

Usually this is the date when one proposes other. Make sure to pick the date which can be easily remembered by both of you (like the date which has some significant importance to your relation).

I think I answered that question with the day we met. That is the date that we committed to our relationship and excluded all others.

I didn't complete the application - our immigration Solicitor did but I wonder what was answererd here on our behalf. I'm not sure the day I met my husband I was interested in making a commitment to him long term although we did live together immediatly, as for when we decided to get married, I wouldn't know the date becuase we rushed it so I didn't have to leave the UK and skipped the traditional engagment period. I suppose it was the day we got married for us!
