D7 home country(UK) Initial 4 month visa application CLARIFICATION

Hi All, 

We have arranged an appointment in June in Manchester to apply for our initial 4 month d7 visa. 

Would someone be kind enough to confirm that at this initial application stage, are we required to provide evidence of a place that we are living at in Portugal (rental agreement)?

A couple of articles that we have read over the last few days talk about having a rental agreement in place only for the meeting with SEF in Portugal, which makes perfect sense. BUT...a rental agreement already in place for the initial meeting in Manchester ......is that officially required at this first stage ?

Different sites seem to be giving different information and the official ones don’t seem to drill down to the detail.

Thank you.
