De Facto Visa stuff....


I am new to this thread, but have been looking at it for a while, the timeline has been a great help!

I have just applied for the visa today in London (I'm Aussie my other half is Irish). I am now worried about our living circumstances and if its enough. We have been living together for over 18months in shared accommodation. Unfortunately we have had to move several times because we have been unable to find people to fill the rooms when other people have moved out. In that time we have lived at 4 different address, we have also never had a bill in our name nor a tenancy agreement (typical London share houses).

However we have had a joint bank account for nearly two years (which I sent in). All rent has been paid from the bank account and all our shopping, joint expenses and travel expenses. Can anyone advise if this will be enough? I just have a sinking feeling about the amount of address we have lived at with no tenancy agreement or bills.

Also do they consider the job of the applicant at all?

Hi Zoe and welcome to the forum,

A tenancy agreement and utility bills with your names on it would have been a great help and so all you can do is explain the reasons for lack of it and have some statutory statements to back up the existence of your relationship, living arrangements being very variable.

The joint bank account from which rent and other costs/bills are paid is good and if at least you have some documentation to match bank account statements that would be better too.
Hopefully, the people at AH doing assessments will understand the accommodation situation in London.

The sponsors work history will be more important in a sense as looking to how a sponsor will sponsor but I imagine as long as an applicant has a reasonable work history rather than none at all, that can be taken into account for how they may settle in.

Good Luck with it.
