Also when we first moved here we met the house requirements by staying with my family.We obtained a report for the council to prove home was not over crowded (we have 2 children ) We have since bought our own house. Do we still need a housing report showing no over crowding?

See the sticky at the top of the page which explains when to apply.

If you own you're own house you do not need a house inspection.

Thank you for the clarification. I typed in FLR M in the search field so I wouldn’t be repeating the same questions over and over but could t find certain answers! We arrived in Scotland 28th November 2017 so earliest we can apply by our calculation is 30 April/1st May 2020. We are gathering the evidence documentation now.
Is there a check list - couldn’t find one when I searched?
Also our financial is pension from Cal Pers do I basically need all the same documentation as before but dated witching the 28 day rule?
The children- we have 2 children together born in the USA but I’m British so they now have their British passports - I know silly question but what do I put them down as in the form?
Thanks is advance for helping!

If you are here on family route (as spouse or unmarried partner), and you entered UK on 33-month visa, then the earliest you can apply to renew your leave on form FLR(M) is on the 30-month anniversary of your UK entry (not from 'valid from' date on your visa, unless you arrived here on the first day of validity), minus 28 days. So for example, if you arrived in UK on your settlement visa on 17th June 2015, you can apply on 17th December 2017 (30-month anniversary), minus 28 days which will be 19th November 2017. So that's the first day you can book your premium service centre appointment for (for same-day service) or send off your application by post.

If you switched your leave within UK from fiancÚ(e) visa or any other non-visit visa (such as Tier 4 student, Tier 5 YMS or Tier 2 General) to leave to remain as spouse/partner on form FLR(M), your leave will be for exactly 30 months so you can renew up to 28 days before its expiry. This is also the case for ILR (settlement) application after being in UK for 5 years.

If you are still relying on Cal Pers Pension to meet financial requirements, then you input all that info again. Basically the FLM(R) extention requires same info as the initial visa

Your children are British - they are not applying for an extention of a visa. You merely need to mention t hem in the 'do you have any children' or similar question.

Thank you so much. Got the date down perfect now for FLM (R)
I feel just as lost with this process as we did with the First part! Didn’t even know we could set appointment to do in person for same day ! I’m reading everything I can but honestly you guys on here give so much better advice and guidance than on the gov site!
Info on booking premier service appointment would be great! I’m gathering evidence docs now. Trying to stay ahead of it all this time!
