My mother-in-law is offering to let us live with her indefinitely and has sent us a letter stating that, as well as the appropriate supporting documents for my visa application. However, I just noticed a form mentioned - "Sponsorship Undertaking Form SU07". Is that something I should have downloaded and had her sign since she is offering to house us?

And another letter question - what should the letter from my husband's future UK employer include? Just that they are offering a position, how much the salary per annum will be, etc.?

Use of the form is optional. If the letter contains all the details required, that's fine. If there is still time, you can ask her to sign the form and send it to you.

Yes. Also if it's a permanent or fixed-term contract. It has to be on the company's official stationery.

Just spoke with husband's employer - they are happy to send the letter, but wondered if they could do a .pdf document and email it for me to print out, or if it has to be a physical letter that they print, sign and snailmail to me. I'm assuming the latter, but just thought it was worth asking about since I'm in a bit of a time crunch...

UKBA basically only accepts original document with real signature, as electronic copies can be forged.

Ok. Well, I assumed it would need to be an original, but since they asked, I said I would find out. Thanks for the help Joppa!

Oops, I realized I had one other question on this subject and then I'll stop asking questions...

Should the letter from the employer (and all letters for that matter) be addressed to the Entry Clearance Officer? Or should it just be a letter from the employer to my husband offering him the position, details, etc. and we are simply submitting that to show to the ECO?

It can be either but probably addressed to ECO is better as it directly addresses the issue of a job in UK. Or they may address it generically as 'To whom it may concern.' Leave it to them to decide.
