Settlement Checking Service
What is the settlement checking service?
The settlement checking service is a partnership between the UK Border Agency, and Wandsworth Register Office.
If you are applying for settlement in the UK on form SET (M) the service will give you assurance that you application is complete and you have paid the correct fee. The service will allow you to keep your valuable documents. Your spouse or partner will be able to keep their passport or travel documents.
The settlement checking service will help you get your application correct first time and avoid unnecessary delays. The UK Border Agency has found that the settlement checking service is generally faster than the normal postal application process. This is due to fewer applications being rejected due to incompleteness or missing documents.
