Evidence to satisfy accommodation in UK

Post by andyrichard » Thu Nov 06, 2008 12:20 am

In order to apply under a Civil Partnership celebrated overseas, we are gatherig the evidence we need to show, but we have a problem trying to figure out which would be the right one to satisfy the accommodation topic. As far as we know we can't make a rent booking from overseas for not being setteled in the UK at the moment of the application is taking place.
We plan to stay with a friend, and once there, we will create a bank account to be able to rent ourselves.
So, the only evidence we got is the name of our friend an his full address.
What would be the evidence we need to show as required according to the guidance notes?
Thank you very much!
Andy

You will need a letter from your friend stating that they are happy for you to stay there whilst you find somewhere of your own. How many bedrooms does your friend have and how many people will be living in the house/flat?

Thanks Martyn! It is a flat with two bedrooms and we will be four people ( two people per room) but my friend is not the owner, is that a problem?
Does the letter has to be hand written? Is it nesesary to legalize the letter ? How? Or, could it be just an e-mail?
