Keep record of your land sale and pay into your bank account. The proceeds can be used as savings after 6 months. The rest of savings can be in the same or different accounts(s) - they must have been in your account for 6 months. Keep statements and origin of savings, such as a letter from donors or record of transfers from current account.

Thank you for your quick and helpful reply….. So when the money transfer into my account then after 6 months I can apply for the spouse visa? This and the rest of the money all in one current account is this ok? 67000 or more would be enough??
Can you give me list of any other requirements that I will need to apply??
Kind Regards &Thanks

It's £62,500 in savings if you don't have non-EEA children.
Look at https://www.gov.uk/government/upload...ment_Final.pdf Page 47ff

This is not quite correct. If you own the land, and then sell it to use as savings, then you can use the cash savings immediately (as long as you have owned the land for more than 6 months, and can prove it through documentation). You don't have to wait 6 months, only until the money is in your personal bank account. The same applies to your other cash savings, of course, they have to have been in your personal bank account for at least 6 months.

You are correct - proceeds of property sale, including land, owned more than 6 months can be used straightaway as savings.

Read the following web site to determine what documentation you have to produce for spouse visa application:

https://www.gov.uk/uk-family-visa

In summary, you have to provide documentation to prove your relationship (marriage certificate, photos of wedding, family, utility bills to prove living together etc etc), proof that you have accommodation for immigrant and yourself, proof you meet the financial requirements (payslips, bank statements, letters of employment, self employment proof etc etc)
