What a great song The Clash wrote back in the 80’s and here we are asking to ourselves what should I do? Yes Brexit has been dominating our lives for a couple of years now and it is definitively a recurrent conversation among friends and international clients.
In the last few months we have had many conversations with some of our former clients about their options and mostly about their feelings. Does London/The UK still feels like the right place to live? What has it changed since that day of their arrival, with the excitement of a new life and new opportunities? Anything? or everything remains the same?
And that is the key point that will help you to answer what The Clash was singing over and over…should you stay or should you go?
If you answer is, as it has been for a few of our clients and acquaintances, to go, then let’s do it. We will be very delighted to assist you during your departure phase and help you close this episode of your life. We can take care of all the admin related to it, sorting out moving companies, declutter your home prior, source temporary solutions while you are waiting to go once your cargo has departed, etc.
If your answer is yes, I shall stay and carry on enjoying what London/the UK has to offer then we will advise you into making this decision as legal as it could be and declare yourself -and those here with you- permanent residents and apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain or the newly Settlement Scheme. Do check the official page to see if you are eligible https://www.gov.uk/settle-in-the-uk
We have done it, we have gone further and applied for citizenship.
If you love living here, you believe, as we do, this is a great place to live, to work and to thrive, then why not become a full participant of the UK system.
