  1. Wife successfully got spouse visa this year using £62,500 savings, now in UK with me.
  2. We want to use this toward a house.
  3. Currently we don't meet the £18,600 income criteria, and won't until August 2018.
  4. When we come to extend visa for FLM, I will have been working for 1 yr over the £18,600 threshold. I want to use this income solely as financial evidence instead of any savings.

*My question* : Can we spend the £62,500 before application for FLM, seeing as I will meet the income criteria at time of application?
Is there any danger of 'officials' checking in on our savings during the next 2 or so years of leave to enter?

Thanks for your help.

You only need to meet the financial requirement at the time of applying for renewal, not throughout the 30-month period. Home Office won't check up on your financial state. So yes, you can spend your savings, and just ensure that you will meet the requirement when you come to apply for FLR(M).
