    I wasn't suggesting you try it! Was generalizing about assets and cash in reply to @bigmac

    can i ask where it is ? here or there ?

    as i said earlier--i sold up my place--in the UK ..and rented for a while. ok--i took a big hit--sale fees, rent for 33 months all told, fees and stamp duty on subsequent purchase---but there simply was no other way--at the time. my only income was state pension.
    the cash also covered her annulment, visa fees, flight and tidying up loose ends. i darent add all that up--the things we do for love eh?
    that covered the time from 2013 to 16.

    but to put it all in context...i got my present house at a bargain price...cash in the bank--nothing to sell---no mortgage--quick completion to suit the vendor. i reckon its already showing a 50 grand increase--and who knows what will happen now post election. i reckon on another 10% this year.

    Hi Bigmac,
    Its here in Philippines, I have 2 places in the Uk im renting out at the moment,but one I will have to stop renting to live in. Timing all depends on selling here,that could take god knows how long. So I take it your in the UK?

    yes--on the isle of Wight. married in 2016. my wife now holds a management job in a care home nearby. happy days.

    you will need to prove you have a suitable place to live in the UK as part of her visa application.

    do you think your cash released from the sale will cover the visa application requirement? ( 62.5k) or will you still need to prove a job income ?

    How about if you sold one of the rented properties..? Would they sell quicker?

    Currently what income do you achieve over the last 12 months on your UK properties if it's above £18600 auditable you can use this under category c income non employment.

    I would say they probably would but would rather get the PH one sold. Its quite far from my wifes family and I think its my best option to sell.
