My Fiance and I are applying in May for the Fiance visa.

I will be moving into a new house next Tuesday (rented) with my sister and her fiance. It is a 4 bed place and our plan is that they have a room for themselves and their baby (due in May) and we have a bedroom and small room as private living room.

I read on one of the sites that you need the landlords permission for the visa applicant to move in. Is this true?

We may run into problems with this if it is as we are renting through a letting agency. My sister and her fiance are more than happy for my fiance to move in and as he will not be paying towards costs for the first 6+ months the agency cannot do a credit check to put him on the lease.

Is a letter from my sister and her Fiance enough to prove accommodation??

Landlord's permission is advisable but not compulsory. The criteria here are overcrowding and sub-letting. As there will be up to 5 of you in a 4-bedroom house, overcrowding won't arise, and since you won't be sub-letting but presumably adding your fiancé as joint tenant, the second situation won't exist. Other than a letter from your sister, just enclose details of the property size and how many occupants. Ideally, try to get a letter from letting agent that they have no objection to your financé being added as joint tenant subject to credit checks. Tell them you need it for the immigration service.

Thanks Joppa,

I will see if I can get a letter from my letting agency.

Will I need to provide anything else about my sister and her fiance? or will the letter stating he can live with us suffice? (ie details of their income and employement)

Yes, that will do. No need to enclose their income or jobs.
