The tenancy you describe will be fine provided you can show that your partner will be able to live with you in your room. You should get your landlord to confirm their agreement to this.
The proofs you describe are fine.
You partner should NOT enter the uk as normal. He MUST apply for the above visa first. It generally takes about 6 weeks for the UKBA to determine each application made, so you should factor this in to your plans.
