    I'm trying to complete my residency forms and gathering evidence to send them to confirm i have been living in the UK for 5 years. Now I have been living at the same address since March 2013, the day I moved to England. I know my dad has child benefit letters which I can send them however they only go up to June or July or last year. This is because I finished college that summer and than turned 18 and I'm in my gap year. I have to include evidence of residency up until today but the problem is since I haven't been working or doing anything I don't have anything to use. My last bank summary was till 10 November 2017 but it doesnt have any activity since i wasnt working. What should i do about the evidence up until now?
    I also have letters from University of Leeds dated February 2018 but I don't think I can use this.

    Hi ItsMeDario,

    To help you better, can I ask you when is the start date of your course?

    Thanks Rona

    Hi ItsMeDario,

    How where you supporting yourself during the gap year? did you claim benefits or do you pay any bills, for example for a mobile phone?

    Thanks

    During my gap year I haven't been doing anything. I still live with my father. I tried applying to a few jobs but didn't get any of them. I don't have any sort of bills that I pay since I own a phone but don't have contract.

    Hi ItsMeDario,

    How did you support yourself financially?

    Thanks

    I didn't. Whilst living with my dad bills and food were paid by him. Since I didn't have a job or money I didn't buy anything. The only time I had to buy something was train tickets and I had enough money when I helped out an elderly couple clean their garden after the bad weather and they paid me for it. Every job I've applied to either gets rejected or I don't get a response. As for benefits I didn't even know I could get those so I didn't receive any.

    Hi ItsMeDario,

    As we need evidence to show your residency the only thing I can suggest is that you send in a letter explaining your circumstances and get your father to write a letter explaining that he fully supported you.

    Thanks

    Catherine
