    How about a copy of the latest mortgage statement (I believe there's one sent every year?) plus the current council tax bill?

    Correct as I believe it is an obligation for the Mortgage Company to do so.

    Indeed, as well as bolts from Bolton, kings from Kingston and now we're off to Penistone...

    Last night (just after my post here) I went onto the Land Registry site myself to see what could be done. I managed to sign up and download something called a title deed which states the property, it's value and the names of my parents in the owners column which should be sufficient. Cost me £4 but was worth it I think.
    Bless my mum but I think she didn't quite know what to do and didn't want to disapoint me. Sadly I work nights (just finished and off to bed in a few minutes) and get no time to teach her how to properly use the internet.
    Either way I'm happy. =)

    As for the itinerary I will put a few touristy places in and a few local ones. I live Englands biggest village (according to sign as you drive in), the UK's first airport is just down the road, as is the oldest running cinema so there is plenty of history, culture etc. I done the London thing when I was younger and I don't care to do it again. =p

    That's exactly what I included in my wife's settlement visa application for my house

    My neck of the woods, used to frequent The Farmers pub many years ago, you could always mention Bramber Castle under the history section ;-) You should do the London thing again and even though you might not be too keen I'm sure your girlfriend will and will love it, worthwhile checking out a personal itinery of the city that bypasses Oxford Street and Harrods ;-).

    Toddmeister: That makes my day. =D

    KhunIanB-UK: What a small world it is. I've lived in Sompting for five years now. Before that I was Worthing for my entire life. Have you been down to Lancing recently? It has changed a heck of a lot in the short time I've been here.
    I do intend on doing the London thing. I've done it, but showing it to someone else does make me the expert and also makes me look very knowledgeable. =p

    One more question though. Should I scan all my wage slips from the last six months? I got one every week and it is coming to a lot. From reading other threads, I'm thinking showing every single one (all are A4 size) in that time might annoy them a whole lot.

    It might end up being quite a lot of paper, but you do need to show your wage slips, so at the risk of annoying them, I would include them.

    Seeing as they are weekly wage slips, you might find a way of grouping them together into months? Perhaps reducing them in size so that more then one fits onto an A4 sheet?

    I don't think "the amount of paperwork in this application annoyed me" can be used as a reason for refusal.

    I have, however, been led to believe that "I am not satisfied that you have access to sufficient funds" can be.

    In the alternative, around this time of year you should receive your P60 for the last tax year. Bung that in instead of a whole host of payslips.

    Better to provide too much than too littel IMHO.

    Get back down that way regularly, was down there last weekend. Quite often visit the harvester now though and a good kebab shop just up the road from the station opposite the Nationwide Was hoping to go to the Bank Holiday Monday Market on Beach Green, but had to head back on the Sunday. It's a nice area down there

    Bifftastic: I ended up scanning my wage slips and printing them on both side of paper. I've also used paper clips to separate them by months. MY attempts at shrinking them made them come out blurred and difficult to read so I figured I'd just print them on both sides of paper just to be safe.

    KhunIanB-UK: I love that kebab shop. The only place I know that serves kebab and rice together. Even better I can order online. =D
    It poured with rain all day on the bank holiday so I doubt the market would have been there had you stayed. It is nice down here. A great place to own a dog.

    "Had to google Sompting"

    Get's used regularly in Thailand, "Darlink, When you come Thailand, bring Sompting for family" ;-)

    Thanks everyone but in the end we didn't bother applying. It turns out the reason she didn't have a letter from her boss is because he wanted me to pay for it, (5000THB) on the grounds that I would be taking her away from the bar for one month and I should pay the bar fee that would normally be required. Naturally I refused as last year she got three months off during summer to spend time with family back home. So after a long chat she needs to get another job (hopefully with a nicer boss).
    Next time I will definately apply as I can't afford to keep going on holiday twice a year. But still, fun was had and I got some great advice here which made me more than prepared.

    5000 baht is a pitance compared to the costs of the holiday and the promise of return to a job, IMHO as it is bar work it would also not weigh too heavily on a reason to return in an ECOs eyes anyway, as in the UK bar work can be easy to come by and switch however good you are at it.

    How much does she earn at the bar? 5000 baht is a typical low monthly wage, could it be paid by her?
