Hi guys,

I'm 96% through my inland common-law PR sponsorship and I received a request for more evidence of cohabitation for 1 year before applying.
I originally supplied a copy of our signed joint rental agreement beginning a year and seven months before sending the application, along with a joint rental insurance policy beginning the same day.

I also included both of our payslips from multiple jobs with address, internet/power bills in her name with address, bank statements showing money going from my account to hers for paying rent and a random other assortment of letters and stuff with our address.

I am looking for additional stuff to send but my email automatically deletes older messages and we've since moved to the other side of the country so we don't have a bunch of old bills and envelopes laying around from that time. All I can find is a more comprehensive copy of our insurance policy. The deadline is in 4 days and I'm kinda freaking out so does anyone know what I can do?

I really thought I had supplied enough proof.

Did you renew the rental agreement and insurance policy after a year? If so, provide the additional docs evidencing this. I think they’ll be looking for consecutive documents spanning the minimum one year period so if you could provide a rental agreement from 2018 and then one from 2019 along with insurance renewal docs, that would provide evidence the cohabitation was sustained.

Also, if you’re both able to go online to access bank statements, payslips, utility bills etc. Download at least a years worth, demonstrating that you both had correspondence sent to the same address for a minimum 12 month period.

Would also warn you that the progress bar is only an estimate of precovid processing times so many now have 100% processing time for multiple months. Unfortunately people assume that processing times are directly linked to the processing of the application. It is just a visual representation of average (precovid) processing times.
