Thanks for your reply.
I always advise my clients to submit 6 months bank statements to demonstrate that they shall be able to able to support/accommodate themselves without recourse to public funds.
However, I have known many applicants who have sent 3 months bank statements and have received approval of their visas. There is no automatic rejection for supplying less than 6 months statements, so you can relax a little bit. Each case is judged on a case by case basis of the supporting documentation provided with the application. If your statements show the income you have available and that the rented property is affordable compared to your income then provided you have submitted adequate evidence that suggests that you wife will be able to find employment here (eg. Adverts for jobs she can do in the area) then I would not expect it to be a problem. If there are other serious defects with the application however then I could foresee the UKBA including only 3 months statements as a minor deficiency of the application and coupled with others forming the basis of a rejection.
