Are you an EU resident and concerned about your right to remain in the UK after Brexit?
Thursday 12 November 2020
If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, you and your family can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021.
The EU Settlement Scheme protects the rights you currently have in the UK including access to healthcare, benefits and pensions. As a Beyond Housing customer, we want to ensure you feel supported through this so if you have any concerns please contact us or speak to the agencies listed at the bottom of this email.
Applying to the EU Settlement Scheme is essential for all EU citizens looking to remain in the UK. You will need to complete an application for settled status or pre-settled status, depending on how long you have been in the UK, which will provide you with the right to continue to rent your home.
It’s recommended you begin your application as soon as possible.
If you do not apply for the EU Settlement Scheme and you no longer have the right to rent your home, your tenancy will be at risk and it could mean you lose your home.
To complete your application, you will need to demonstrate that you are living in the UK. Beyond Housing may be able to help provide information that supports your application such as rent statements and tenancy agreements. If you require this information, please get in touch with us.
