I have a question regarding accommodation requirement for UK Spouse Visa. All the other requirements have been met.
I'm the applicant. I live abroad. My wife has ILR and daughter has British citizenship and they are both resident in the UK. They presently live in a 2 bedroom and 1 living room apartment with my Father-in-law. We are scared of a refusal. So we want to rent a 2bedroom apartment.
Here is the problem: Is it acceptable to use this newly rented apartment to meet the accommodation requirement by providing only Tenancy agreement and letter from landlord with permission for me to live in the apartment? It is a newly rented apartment. So no utility bills. And we don't want to wait until we have utility bills for the apartment. Also, is a property inspection necessary for this apartment, given that it would be occupied by only my wife and daughter?
