What about the letting/property agent? Can he/she become my referee?

Thanks.

Hi Okto:

The requirements are very clear. Anyone who is a British Citizen and knows you for over three years can become a Referee. Solicitor/Agent is referring to your solicitor/Agent.  That's what I understand, may be you need to clear it with Citizenship Service agencies.  I don't think they can exclude all kinds of agents and solicitors. I believe here they are referring to the Solicitor/agent who might be presenting your case to the immigration.  Make sure you clear this if you have to have an agent as a referee or just use someone else to avoid confusion.

You raise a good point because agents are commonly known for property or letting agents but Immigration rules did not defined here properly. I used my neighbor, may be you can do the same.

How long exactly those people need to know me before I can nominate them as my referees? Some said 2 years, some other said 3 years. I am confused now, can anyone help?

Thanks.

Alright may be I will have to just go back to the basics.  What is your confusion?  Read the botto link from Home Office site and let me know then I might be able to help you and can explain you better. This is pretty black and white to me so I am not sure why you are so confused. This is direct from Home Office Site.  If someone says Two years don't listen to them. It is three.

Once you have two referees and they have
completed Section 6 you
