Default UK Spouse visa Checklist before Applying

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this forum and I've checked out posts here that were realy helpful for me when I was gathering all my docs for the UK spouse visa. Basically, i am british and my husband is nigerian. We got married in Nov 2019 and we have been together for 2 years. We met while he was studying at the same uni as me in the UK.
We are pretty sure that we have all the documents and maybe over did it but we'd like to get your opinion on our checklist to see if you think we should add something else. I'd really appreciate your help as we are applying in 2 days!

Applicant
- Current passport
- Old passport
- Letter of support
- Tuberculosis test certificate
- BA economics from UK university certificate
- old BRP card from the UK, front and back
- Appendix form
- Online application form
- Priority receipt
-Biometrics appointment receipt
- Health subcharge receipt

Sponsor
- Current passport
- letter of support

Accommodation
- Photos of the house
- Tenancy agreement
- No objection letter from landlord
- Signed letter from the tenants stating they are fine with my husband joining me

Financial

- employer letter (CATEGORY A EARNING ABOVE 18,600)
- Annual returns documents from my company showing I dont hold any shares
- 6 months bank statements stamped by the bank

- contract of employment

relationship
- Voice call logs from sept 2019 to feb 2020 as whatsapp doesnt allow to go back more than sept 2019
- texts log from these 2 years (3 screenshots per month, which equals to 72 screenshots in total). We used screenshots of the exact same conversation from his phone and mine to show that screenshots are not exclusively from mine. We also provided the contact info page from whatsapp to show our numbers and pictures to add credivility.
- Video call pictures
- relationship pictures for the 2 years: 56 pictures
-marriage certificate + 8 pictures
- family and friends letters of support with scanned passports
- my flights to visit him in nigeria twice, with visas and boarding pass

What do you think guys? Please give me your honest opinion.

Thank you!!

All of the following are unnecessary:
Quote:
- BA economics from UK university certificate (irrelevant to the application)
- old BRP card from the UK, front and back (not required)
- Appendix form (this information is in the application itself, Appendix 2 isn't needed anymore)
- Sponsor's urrent passport (make sure it's just a plain photocopy of the bio pages, not the original passport)
- Photos of the house (if you're living with other people in the same property you are advised to get a property inspection report performed, photos are not sufficient or even recommended)
- Annual returns documents from my company showing I dont hold any shares (irrelevant)
-p60 (won't show any of the financial period you're relying upon)
You are supplying WAY too much relationship evidence (by a very large margin).

Supply 10-15 photos (a couple from the wedding).
They do NOT want to see letters of support from friends and family - Totally irrelevant unless this is an arranged marriage. A genuine relationship is between two people, not their parents or siblings or friends.
Supply 10-15 pages total of ALL communication evidence (screenshots, chats, call logs, etc.) - Don't exceed this.
Gifts are irrelevant
Only supply communication between the two of you - Not facebook or instagram posts

Don't provide either of these:
Quote:
- screenshots of instagram post of the song that my husband wrote and recorded in the studio and also from the dance i made for the song on my instagram
- screenshots of texts that our family and friends sent us after the wedding to congratualte us
Please don't overcomplicate your application, you will delay the processing.
