Oh ok. I was looking at it under extra services and couldn't find it there. Thanks!

The £69.99 appointment should already include the document scanning and document checking services :).

It’s basically a free appointment with those services already included.

See:
https://www.ukvcas.co.uk/additional-services/detail

From that page:

Enhanced service points
We have enhanced service points across the UK. An appointment at one of our enhanced service points also includes the evidence scanning and evidence checking services. Prices start from £69.99 per person.

Is this ok for a cover letter explaining my missing trip from the application?

When completing the online application I accidentally omitted a visit out of the UK. The visit was to the United States of America. We left the UK on the 23rd of May 2018 and arrived back in the UK on the 29th of May 2018.  The purpose of the travel was to have our wedding party. Although we were legally married in February 2018, we had previously planned an official ceremony for May 2018 for all of our friends and family to attend.

If you have any questions or need anything further, please do not hesitate to contact me.

It's fine, though personally I think it's too detailed. It's probably easier just to list the details, for example:

When completing the online application I accidentally omitted a visit outside the UK, the details of which are:
Dates: 23/05/2018 - 29/05/2018
Destination: United States
Reason for trip: to attend our wedding party with family and friends

If you have any questions or need anything further, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Back again!

Biometrics appointment is a week from today and I am making sure all my declarations and cover letter are printed and ready to go to Edinburgh with me next week.  Would you mind reading the cover letter and see if it's ok?

To Whom it May Concern:

I am writing to clarify one of my answers on the application. The question asking “Have you lived with your partner since your marriage or civil partnership?”, I answered No because I assumed this meant at any time after we were married did we not live together. We have lived together since I arrived in the UK 7 May 2018. Also, when completing the online application I accidentally omitted a visit outside of the UK. The details are listed below:

Destination:          United States of America
Date I left the UK:    23/05/2018
Date I arrived back in UK:    29/05/2018
Purpose of trip:      to attend our wedding party with family and friends

If you have any questions or need anything further, please do not hesitate to contact me.

So my last post until approval comes...

Biometrics is tomorrow. I'm always worried I'm forgetting something so can someone please check over one last time what I'm providing?

Application Documents
- Cover letter explaining omission of trip out of UK, date format on U.S. Chase credit card statement, and incorrect answer provided on application question about living with partner since marriage.
- My current and old passport
- Signed consents (part 1 & 2) and signed declaration from husband
- Marriage certificate

Proof of Identity/Travel History
- Husband's current passport
- My brp

Residence in the UK
Accommodation

- Land registry
- Latest mortgage statement
- Latest council tax bill

Cohabitation
- all my correspondence (list posted earlier in the thread)

Finances
- bank statements  (we will use category A)
- Weekly payslips
- Employment letter (posted earlier but updated with newest payslips, explanation about no pay for the 2 weeks during Christmas and New Years)
- latest P60

I have printed my biometrics QR code and will be taking that as well. I also printed the email for the IHS payment. Does that need to be provided with my application documents? I know in my previous spousal visa we sent it in but wasn't sure about this visa. Also, since everything is going to be scanned at the biometrics appointment, do I need to do cover sheets for my evidence like I did previously? I'm going through today and removing any staples or paper clips.

Thanks in advance and always massive thank you to @ksand24 and @larrabee in particular! You two keep my head above water with these  :D

No, you don't need the IHS sheet, as your IHS number is already on your online application.

You don't need cover sheets (those are only for applications made outside the UK and are provided by VFS Global).

That's Biometrics officially done and everything submitted to Home Office. They scanned everything for me. Took about 30 minutes. Roads were on the rough side down to Edinburgh but so far better on the way home. Now...we wait 😁
