Default Questions about Set(M) documents

Hi all,

I was about to submit my Set(M) application - trying to do this as soon as possible because I want to get an appointment date soon. However, I read a thread where someone had prepped all the documents BEFORE submitting the online application. I have some documents available and scanned, but still waiting for some payslips to come through from HR and may take a week or so.

My questions are:

-Is there a time limit to upload my documents right after submitting my application?

-Regarding the 28-day limit, am I correct to assume that this is 28 days within (so before or after) the application date? For example, if I submit my application today, all my bank statements need to be stamped with a date no older or newer than 28 days from application date?

-I know I need to upload the entire copy of my husband's passport as his proof of UK residency, but do I need to bring the actual passport to the appointment?

-Does he have to come with me to the appointment?

Many thanks

Your documents have to be uploaded before your biometric appointment date unless you have them scanned and uploaded at the appointment. It is best to try and have everything ready when you submit the application so that you can pick an early date for your appointment. Your financial and employment documents should be dated within 28 days prior to the date of submission of your application. You should take all your original documents to the appointment, including your husband's passport but it unlikely they will check anything other than your passport and BRP card. However, do take all originals with you. No, he does not have to come with you. Depending on the centre you go to, some do not have space for spouses!

Thank you so much for your help! I am so glad I checked that the dates on the financial documents have to be 28 days BEFORE the application date. I thought I could just submit the application, and organise the documents as they come before my appointment date.

And just to clarify, it is only required for documents to prove employment and finance (pay slips, letter from employer, bank statements showing pay going in)

All the other stuff (mortgage agreement, council tax bill) does not need to be within the 28 days, or certified true copy within the 28 days?

As far as I know, that is correct. Submit your most recent documents though, eg council tax bill.

Don't understand what you mean by house contract, but you have to scan and upload ALL documents (not just house contract) onto Sopra Steria website. It is good to have originals with you at the appointment but they most probably won't look at them. What they ask you to show is applicant passport & applicant BRP

Hi all,

I have a bit of a panicked query about the 28-day rule, I posted this on the Documents megathread and got no responses.


I submitted my online application and paid yesterday so: 20/06/19

My husband's last payslip is dated 24/05/19 so my application was submitted on day 28. I just realised this, ideally I would have liked a bit of buffer so there is no ambiguity, am I still ok?

Also, we got bank statements detailling pay that went into his account. Other than transaction dates, the only date that is on this document is the date they were printed in branch (20/06/19 - accompanied by branch stamp with sort code), so there is no way to tell if the most recent statement was issued within the 28 day limit. Can I still use these?

Also - we own our home. Do we need to send land registry documents? I saw that most people included this in their application, but we do not have a copy. I looked into buying a copy but the only way you can pay is via cheque and we don't own any chequebooks We will be submitting mortgage statements to show ownership but worried this may not be enough.


Many thanks in advance!

You have included latest payslip at the time of application which is 24-May (exactly 28th day) If he gets his payslip as many of us on last Friday of the month he won't get another one until 28-June which is after the application. Make sure you include full set (6 or 12 moths - whatever is applicable to your case)

Also, we got bank statements detailling pay that went into his account. Other than transaction dates, the only date that is on this document is the date they were printed in branch (20/06/19 - accompanied by branch stamp with sort code), so there is no way to tell if the most recent statement was issued within the 28 day limit. Can I still use these?

The date statements are printed and stampled by bank is the date, so yours indicate 20-June which are within the requirement.

Also - we own our home. Do we need to send land registry documents? I saw that most people included this in their application, but we do not have a copy. I looked into buying a copy but the only way you can pay is via cheque and we don't own any chequebooks We will be submitting mortgage statements to show ownership but worried this may not be enough.

Mortgage statement, mortgage agreement and council tax is what they are looking for to see your monthly living costs. Land registry extract is not mandatory

Many thanks in advance!
Hope that helps
