I am trying to apply for my British citizenship using the UKM form..... I live in the canada and am flying over in july to visit my family....I have been trying to make an appointment with a national checking service to turn in all my documents while Im there and still keep my passport for travel. It seems no one understands I dont need to be a resident to apply nor take the Life in UK test for this and will not make me an appointment. Any helpful advice on how to apply for this and still keep my passport....can you help with immigration law advice
I have requested the full £400 deposit from my tenant who is moving out on Sunday. This was a way of keeping costs down for my tenant as the quotes I am getting to repair the damage will cost £1000. He is claiming some damage cant be is fault i.e. water damage to the kitchen ceiling (clearly from the bathroom) and he is now accusing my dad of ripping my lino near the washer even though the tenant was with my dad when he did the repair. The damage has clearly happened when he has removed his washer. I have also notices ink on my living room carpet, badly chipped door, nail varnish on window ledges, badly marked walls etc. Should I just accept the £400 deposit (although the tenant may not agree to this) or should I go to court to recover all costs? I have photos of the damage, quotes and I can collect witness statements from friends, family, new tenants moving in and professionals who carried out work prior to him moving in.
