Since the official launch of our Chestertons Global Citizenship division, our team has seen a continued increase around our existing clients looking at gain UK Residence. Given the long running routes Chestertons has in the UK real estate market this was not necessarily a surprise, however the ability to give our clients the ability to not simply purchase real estate but attached long-term residence to this has seen the synergy establish itself quickly.
Our Chestertons Global Citizenship team has established some unique UK residence options based around business or entrepreneurial endeavors. These legislated Residence options grant applicants the ability to settle, live and work in the UK, they lead to both Indefinite Leave to Remain as well as Citizenship over legislated residence periods. Another real value add is that main applicants are able to add both married or unmarried partners and children under the age of 18 as dependents, giving families access to the UK marketplace, education, healthcare and the ability to become British Citizens.
The required capital investment range across our options but we can safely say that we should have available options for those considering longer term residence in the UK. This who previously engaged in real estate acquisitions with Chestertons as a stand-alone service will now have the extended ability to work with our team in attaching residence to this purchase. Capital investments can start as low as GBP 25,000 but again we would suggest an initial consultation with one of our Global Citizenship team to better choose on the appropriate category and way forward.
We look forward to helping our existing and new clients in obtaining their UK Residence and securing long-term value for both themselves and their families.
