Default SET(M) document checklist

Hi there,
I just received my latest bank statement and just wanted to make sure I had all of my documents in place before submitting my application today.

Just for context, my wife is British by birth. I applied for my first spouse visa while in Canada. Arrived in UK on 31.01.2015. We are applying under category A for the financial requirement with my wife's salary.


Current passport
Previous passport (with original spouse visa)
Biometric residence permit
Spouse's current passport
Spouse declaration
Marriage certificate
Life in the UK pass confirmation

6 x electronic payslips (August to January)
6 x monthly bank statements (original ones sent in the post, August to January)
Letter from employer (letter also states payslips are genuine)
Work contract from 2017
Two contract amendments (wife has changed her working hours twice since signing contract)
*No P60 submitted (p60 for August-January doesn't exist)

2 x water bills
2 x council tax bills
2 x home insurance letter
1 x joint account statement
*All letters are jointly addressed between September 2017 and January 2020.
** I have only scanned the first page of these letters showing our names, a date, and address. Do I need to scan anymore showing the full contents of each letter??

1 x land title register (from HM land registry, paid for a new copy last week)
*We do not have s mortgage. Do we need more housing evidence as we don't get mortgage statements? Council tax letters already scanned for correspondence evidence.

Are we missing anything? We have a son that was born here. Should I submit his passport or birth certificate because I mention him in the reasons for needing to live in the UK.

Any feedback would be appreciated and I hope this helps other applicants as well.
