Joint mortgage, joint pictures, joint travel will all be valuable.

Your PR application date is the date you submitted the combined 820/801.
If yours was 27/5/17, then your final stage documents could be looked at from 27/5/19 (The 801 eligibility date, which is 24 months after the 820 application).

When you say 19-25 months, that refers to the previous months grants where 75% were done in under 19 months from your 801 eligibility date (ie: 27/5/19 as above), and 10% took over 25 months.
Some recent 801 grants have taken 20.3, 3.4, 16.4, 11.1, 12.1, 10.7, 14.7, 4.1 and 11.3 months from the 801 eligibility date.
Thank you so much for this info!!!

Do we need to write statements as well? Another police check for 801? We just upload new ones (police checks) in December, so I uploaded those.
Congrats everyone who got their PR granted and congrats to others who are still waiting for it. Patience is a virtue!!!
I find dates for 801 very confusing: PR submitted 27.04.2019, and when you click on 'View details' it says 'Application submitted 27.05.2017.' So from when do you then calculate 19-25 months for PR?!
And another enquiry: where do Europeans send enquiry form? The London Departmental office, which is responsible for Europeans, is not on the list. Any suggestions?
Thanks heaps everyone!
Things I would re-upload;

1. Lease, mortgage even if it is the same.
2. Certificate of marriage, relationship (if any)
3. Updated Police Check
4. New 888 forms x 2

Then I would upload following documents from the date my 820 granted. My 820 was granted after 7 months so I had 1.5 years documents to collect.

1. Photos
2. Travel
3. Joint bank statements (if any)
4. Bills
5. Household purchase items

etc.

I agree they would like to see quality candidates. However, this particular visa is more about the relationship. It is important to show them that before you put too much weight on your career progress, education etc in your application.

I did upload some backups for my further studies and work just because there were questions about that on the application. It was just one or two documents to support my answers.

I received my new card (green) in the mail. No need to take any action

Hi all, I haven't been on here for a while, but can add to the good news train: my husband's 801 was granted just over a week ago.

Our timeline:

Applied PMV: December 2014
PMV granted: September 2015
Applied 820/801: May 2016
820 granted: February 2017
801 Eligibility: May 2018
Submitted 801 docs: May 2019
801 granted: June 2019

We were very slow in getting our 801 docs ready. For the first 8 months I wasn't in too much of a hurry because I thought there'd be no chance they'd look at it, but once we started, I remembered how long it takes to get everything in order, eg. getting Form888s. I should have known, this being Round 3. I still never figured out how to do some things, eg. how to get a log of Whatsapp calls.

By early May it was really getting to the time where it was likely someone might look at it so we sent off the form, but hadn't actually done the attachments, or hardly any. With a toddler it always seems impossible to get anything done. A few weeks later we got a request for more information, but the list of what was required was just four blank pages, and for the life of me I can't find a checklist on the new Immi website; it just sends you round in circles. I started uploading stuff over the next few hours and emailed a reply to the request asking for clarification on the checklist. At 5pm I got a call from the CO who said she'd seen what we'd uploaded already and after taking a statement from me confirming the relationship was ongoing and I was still sponsoring my husband, she said she'd be able to finalise it by the end of the day!

I stopped manically circling things on bank statements and scanning everything in sight and instead waited a tense half an hour and then the grant came! What a relief after 4.5 years of this visa journey.

The funny thing was I didn't feel we had uploaded nearly enough - we hadn't even done the 888s or any new photos. But we are expecting a second child in November (maybe that helped?) and she was satisfied she could make the decision then and there.

I feel so lucky we got such a nice CO who called personally in reply to my email and finalised it on the spot.

Good luck to everyone still waiting. It does look like there's been a flurry of activity over the last month, as the end of the financial (and immigration planning) year comes to an end. I think they are keen to bump off as many straightforward applications as they can to meet this year's quota, so let's hope a few more people get good news.

I also have news of another couple, friends of ours from Berlin who applied for the 820/801 in February 2017 (from a tourist visa). They'd been waiting 27 months on the bridging visa, but as they were travelling to Germany, applied for a BVB. Days before departure, they got both the 820 and 801 granted instead. I was very happy for them, as having waited so long for the 820 actually saved them 1-2 years extra wait time to get the 801.

Now that the wait times are so long across the board, I wonder if that will be the case for a lot of couples, going straight to PR after a 2 year+ wait for stage 1?
