My husband is currently living with his parents in the UK. He is getting a tenancy agreement drawn up with them as he is renting from them until I arrive and we can look for a flat. Does anyone have experience with a situation like this? Have people been getting approved in this case?
He will also get:
his name on the council tax
a letter stating that I can move in when I arrive
Other recommendations on what to include?

Thanks!

He does not need a lease agreement, just a letter inviting you both to stay.
He does not need to be on the council tax.
He will need a property inspection
Council tax Bill
Mortgage statement and land registry if they own the property
If they are renting then a letter from the agent to say you can both stay there

He does not need to be on the council tax, but needs a council tax bill?

If the Parents are Tenants they may not be allowed to sub-let. Far better for them to provide an Invitation Letter
They own the house. I thought it might be better for our case if there was a tenancy agreement, but if not, that's great!

A Tenancy Agreement could create other issues for the Parents ( Income Tax etc ) so best avoided and get the Letter of Invitation.

Let's clarify some things. He's living with his parents. They own their home. There is no need for a tenancy agreement between him and his parents. You need the deed or land registry to prove that they own the home. You need a council tax or other bill in their name to prove that they live there. It's highly recommended that they have a property inspection to prove there will be no over crowding. They need to write a letter giving you permission to live there. That's it.
