Dear Kulwant Ghaleigh,

RE: 10990

Kulwant, thanks for providing all of this information. I would like to raise awareness that the "Housing-Rights.info" website does infact have many inaccurate bits of info.

IE: (as noted in your guidance) it is optional for a non-EEA Family member of an EEA National to register for a residence card (EEA2) [this is even stated on Home Office documents - where as the website actually states they "Must register within three months of arrival".

I will pass your info onto them also - as many authorities actually only use this website for guidance (and have apparently created no guidance such as your own).

Yours sincerely,

Wayne Pearsall
