Yes it can be given as gift - not a loan and not expected to be paid back at some stage.

The donor must provide documentation saying as such, and provide proof as to where the money came from.

Then, of course, bank statements showing transfer of said money.

Not many can or do give a gift of such a big amount so Home Office will be sceptical to start with. Even if you attach a letter from donors stating it's a gift, they may suspect it is a short-term loan to facilitate immigration. So you really need to demonstrate the gift came from their disposable income, such as from their savings and not from a loan they had taken out.

Who's giving you the money?

They will expect to see the bank statement of the person giving you the money. If it's truly a gift, they will expect to see a significant amount of money left in the account after giving you the gift.

Most people keep their wealth in savings and long-term investment. So if there is evidence the money came from their savings account or investment without affecting their standard of living, then they are more likely to believe it was a genuine gift instead of a contrived loan to facilitate immigration. There is a lot of scam going on so their scepticism is justified.

Just put yourself in the shoes of a sceptical Home Office staff who have seen scams before. They need to be convinced that the donor could afford the gift, by showing their overall financial position, income and savings. Also they need to be closely related to you and your partner because a friend doesn't normally give away 62.5 grand.

So show how you or your partner is related to the donor. Their financial situation in terms of savings, assets, investment, income. How the gift is sourced, such as from savings, liquidated investment etc. And audit trail of gifting the money, and donor's letter about the gift.

Yes, that looks promising. I can't tell you whether Home Office will raise any objections as they make their own mind up.

A 20k job and still have savings of 20k savings seems minimal to me for someone to give away 62k as that will still make a huge dent in his assets. Unless he has a 1/2 million pound plus home paid off and no debts.
