Users Flag! Originally from england. Users Flag! Expat in newzealand.

Due to changes in Immigrations operations the file has been transferred to the London office for processing and due to their workload they have informed you the timeline has changed to 6 months.
When applying without a job offer it can and does take many months for an application to be assigned a case officer as the file is not a priority to them (as it has no job offer associated with it).
You have not yet been assigned a case officer and the timeline will be from when the file was received in London, but it is just a timeline and nothing concrete. It is a guide. You could have a CO assigned next week but on the flip side it could be 6 months or more.

There is nothing you can do other than wait patiently and maybe send Immigration Customer Services an email reminder every once in a while although it would be better if you contacted them by phone as always better speaking to someone directly.
