Thank you for your reply.
It is not unheard of that the home office have lost a BRP or other documents before, unfortunately it is something that does happened, as the home office is a big organisation.
The fact that you have sent it recorded delivery you should have a tracing number on it receipt you received from the Post office, this should have when entered into the website for royal mail given you the time it was delivered and the person who signed for it.
Unfortunately because of the time that has now passed since you originally sent your BRP, it is safe to say that this is now lost.
If your biometric residence permit is lost or stolen, inside or outside the UK, you must report the loss or theft to the home office as soon as possible by [email protected]
so that they can cancel your biometric residence permit. You are required by law to do this. In your email you must state:
o your full name;
o your date of birth;
o your nationality;
o your passport number;
o your biometric residence permit reference number;
o your case reference number;
o your contact details; and
o when, where and how the permit was lost or stolen.
If you do not provide all this information, there may be a delay in answering your query.
You must also report the loss or theft to the police, and get a police report and crime reference number, as soon as possible.
If your biometric residence permit is lost or stolen when you are in the UK, you must apply for another permit within 3 months of reporting the loss or theft of your original permit, using the BRP(RC) form which you can download using the following link:
If you do not apply for a replacement permit, you may have to pay a financial penalty of up to £1,000, or the home office may curtail (shorten) your permission to stay.
I believe that as your BRP is now lost you should follow the above steps as stated and obtain a replacement BRP card.
