Did you opt for Priority or Non-Priority?

I'd wait 60 days and fingers crossed you hear back from them, if not then get the local MP involved and get them to pester HO for an update on the application.

There is no published target for complex cases (as defined by Home Office). So you can wait indefinitely.

There are no time-frames, just pray you hear back before 31st October - but you should prepare yourself to the fact you might be waiting a while.

I've been waiting 6 months. My biometrics were in April and I received the not straight forward email in July. I hope you're not as unlucky as me but my advice would be prepare yourself for a long wait.
