Re-locating

Let us take all the stress and strain, while you carry on working seamlessly

Our re-location services

Mark Dean Wealth advises individuals and families looking to relocate to the UK. We can help you get your investor visa and provide a complete relocation service to make your move to the UK a successful one.

We have strategic partnerships in place ranging from leading immigration consultants, relocation agents to schooling advisers. We can guide you through all the complexities with our extensive network of professional specialists in most areas that would assist anyone when relocating to the UK.

Contact us today to arrange a meeting with one of our senior representatives to find out more.

Investor Visa

The Tier 1 (Investor) visa is designed for high net worth individuals who want to relocate themselves and their family to the UK. This visa category applies to the main applicant plus your spouse and children under the age of 18.

The visa is granted for three years and four months and can then be extended for a further two years, so long as your provide evidence that an investment of at least £2 million was made in the UK.

There is no requirement to demonstrate English language ability. The length of time required to qualify for permanent residence depends on the amount of investment, as follows:

Investment of £2 million – eligibility for indefinite leave to remain (ILR) after 5 years in the UK
Investment of £ 5 million – eligibility for indefinite leave to remain (ILR) after 3 years in the UK
Investment of £ 10 million – eligibility for indefinite leave to remain (ILR) after 2 years in the UK

The number of days that the applicant is permitted to spend outside of the UK has been increased to 180 days per year. Applicants in the first category are eligible to apply for British citizenship after having spent 6 years in the country, while those in the second and third categories are eligible to apply after 5 years of residence in the UK.

The investment into the British economy can be made as follows

The Immigration Rules now permit children aged 18 years to apply under the Tier 1 (Investor) category, provided that their parents support the application and confirm that they are happy with the care arrangements in place. Whilst in the UK with this type of leave, Tier 1 investor children are permitted to study for their A-levels at a private school and can then progress to university. This means that they can use this route to achieve indefinite leave to remain by the time they are 22 years old, assuming they meet the requirements including that regarding residence. This is a simpler route to settlement than that under the Tier 4 student category. Furthermore, subject to meeting the specific residence requirement, such individuals could then potentially be British citizens by the time they are 24 years old.

It is important to note that the residence requirement for becoming a British citizen is different to that which has to be met when applying for indefinite leave to remain.

Whilst a Tier 1 (investor) migrant can spend up to 180 days out of every 12 month period they live in the UK abroad without jeopardising their eligibility for settlement, when it comes to applying for British citizenship, they must not have spent more than 450 days out of the UK during the 5 year qualifying period, and no more than 90 days during the final 12 months of this.

Entrepreneur Visa

We advise and support business entrepreneurs, high net worth individuals and exceptionally talented individuals making applications under Tier 1 of the points-based system.

The Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) visa category applies to the main applicant plus your spouse and children under the age of 18. The visa is granted for three years and four months and can then be extended for further two years. Applicants in the first category are eligible to apply for British citizenship after having spent 6 years in the country, while those who create ten jobs or achieve an annual turnover of £5 million a year are eligible to apply after 5 years of residence in the UK.

To make a successful entrepreneur visa application, applicants are required to score sufficient points based on the funds that are available to them to invest, their English Language ability and by having enough money for their living costs in the UK (maintenance).

Applicants are also required to meet the maintenance requirement. This means that in addition to the funds required for investment they need to show personal funds to satisfy the UKBA that they will be able to pay for their own living costs.

It is possible for those who are in the United Kingdom as Tier 1 Post Study Workers to switch into the Tier 1 Entrepreneur category, and for those who are here under Tier 4 as students as a Graduate Entrepreneur.

Permenant Residency & UK Citizenship

We are able to provide support for Permanent Residency & UK Citizenship, including the Life in the UK test via our strategic partnership with DWI.

Making an application to certify Permanent Residence can be complex and the number of documents required can turn people off the idea. Yet this could be the only option for some EU migrants to ensure security with regards to their status in the UK. This is more likely to apply to EU migrants who have recently entered the UK and are closer to clocking up 5 years as opposed to 6 years, but it applies to all EU citizens who have lived here for a long time with the passport of their country of origin, provided they meet the rules and requirements.

Holding permanent residency means there are no restrictions attached to your leave in the UK and you are free to exit and enter as you wish, provided you are not out of the country for more than 2 years at which point Permanent Residence is lost.

Naturalising as a British Citizen

Applications for Naturalisation are governed by the British Nationality Act 1981; as such, there are no separate rules for EU and non-EU citizens as regards applying to naturalise as a British citizen.

All applicants have to meet the same requirements regardless of their nationality. The Immigration Rules and European Regulations have no bearing on these applications.

If you are an EU citizen and have been living in the UK for 6 or more years you could be eligible to make an application to be naturalised and acquire British Citizenship.

The application for British citizenship is much the same as for non-EU migrants, but in short:

  • You must have been in the UK for 6 or more years;
  • During your time in the UK, you must have been exercising Treaty Rights e.g. working, self-employed, or a student,for example;
  • You must meet the residence requirements which include an assessment of your absences from the UK and where you intend to live after making the application;
  • You will need to pass the Life in the UK Test;
  • You also need to pass an approved English Language Test – or have an approved degree from /be a national of a majority English speaking country;
  • You must meet the “Good Character” guidance, for example no recent or serious criminal convictions, you must not be bankrupt, or associated with those considered to have “bad character”
  • All of this also applies to family members of European Union nationals.

Once you’ve met all the requirements for Naturalisation and obtained your naturalisation certificate, you will then be able to make an application for a British passport. You will no longer find yourself having to prove your residence in the UK on a regular basis to the Home Office.

Dual Citizenship

Dual citizenship (also known as dual nationality) is allowed in the UK. This means you can be a British citizen and also a citizen of other countries. However, many countries don’t accept dual nationality, so we advise you to check the law in your country of origin before you apply.

Relocation Agent

London is an incredibly vibrant city, attracting buyers and tenants from across the world. But it also has a complex property market & unique purchasing and rental practices. Relocating to London can be a really complex and time consuming process.

Mark Dean Wealth has teamed up with a specialist company called ‘Address Property Consultants’ (APC) who offer bespoke relocation services tailored to your needs. So whether its ‘should you buy or rent?, ‘where should I live’? or which school should my children go to? APC can guide you through your move to London with minimal stress and make the process as least time consuming as possible

APC has been established as an independent relocation agent since 2012 and has worked with many families and individuals to find a home in Central London, and in the process established a reputation for providing a top quality relocation service with a personal touch.

Unlike many other relocation consultants, Silvina & her team have lived in most of the areas that APC covers, so they have insider’ knowledge of London.

APC will listen and assess your needs and then provide suggestions as to the areas they feel you might like or maybe more suitable to your needs. They will also assist you with information on all the local schools in the area and assist you with navigating the educational system. They can also help with language training for the whole family. They will work around your time and demands giving you access to invaluable information on properties in Central London and also sourcing off-market properties that are not available on the internet or in estate agents windows.

Once you have decided on which area to live and which property you want to go for, APC will provide objective advice & negotiate the best deal on your behalf, which includes dealing with all parties concerned, such as the rental or estate agency or owner but also with solicitors, surveyors, mortgage brokers, interior designers, etc. (all of whom, we can also introduce you to), so you can be involved as little or as much as you like.

APC specialises in sourcing properties (rental or purchasing), in Central London such as Kensington & Chelsea (Knightsbridge, Chelsea, Notting Hill, etc), Westminster (Belgravia, Mayfair, Marylebone, etc), St Johns Wood, Queens Park, etc.

Buying Agent

Mark Dean Wealth has teamed up with Address Property Consultants (APC) who act as buying agents on behalf of our clients. They search for properties and acquire them on behalf of our clients at the best possible price.

London is an incredible and vibrant city, attracting buyers from across the world. It has a complex property market and unique purchasing practices. For example, did you know that many properties are not advertised anywhere? APC has the connections to get those off-market and not in the market properties. And to make sure they negotiate the best deal on your behalf.

APC provides independent & personalised advice to your individual circumstances, providing you bespoke advice aimed at achieving your property goals. APC also has an international mind set and can understand where you are coming from when you are a foreigner and need somebody you can trust.

APC has the knowledge and the experience to advise you with regards to areas, and even streets within areas, and provide objective advice to assist you in assessing value, yield or potential for capital growth. APC will also act on your behalf to negotiate the best deal for you, which includes the estate agency or seller but also with solicitors, surveyors, mortgage brokers, architects, etc. (all of whom, we can also introduce you to) so you can be involved as little or as much as you like.

APC can cover most of London but have particular knowledge and expertise in: Chelsea, South Kensington, Kensington W8, Knightsbridge, Mayfair, Marylebone, Notting Hill, Belgravia, Holland Park, Bayswater, Pimlico & St Johns Wood, Hampstead, Primrose hill, Little Venice & Queens Park.

Rental Search

If you have never lived in London or you need to move quickly, renting maybe the best option for you.

The London rental market has unique rental practices and it is not centralised as in most counties. Estate Agencies will not show you all the properties available in one area. You may need to go through a very time consuming process to find a property.

Mark Dean Wealth has teamed up with Address Property Consultants (APC) who act as rental search agent on behalf of our clients.

APC will listen to your requirements and help you find the most suitable rental property. They will also negotiate the best possible deal to suit your needs.

APC can cover most of London but have particular knowledge and expertise in: Chelsea, South Kensington, Kensington W8, Knightsbridge, Mayfair, Marylebone, Notting Hill, Belgravia, Holland Park, Bayswater, Pimlico & St Johns Wood, Hampstead, Primrose hill, Little Venice & Queens Park.

Schooling

Finding the right school plays a crucial role in determining the success of a relocation, as a child’s happiness and welfare are at the heart of every parent’s wish list.

Same as with property, the UK educational system is very unique and can be difficult to understand. We appreciate this and can help you navigate the educational system which offers lots of choice: International vs British? public vs private?, boarding vs day-school?, artistic vs academic?

In case you need help with specific placements or detailed advice as well as tutors and other educational services (including special needs) we can put you in touch with first class school and educational consultants that we have carefully selected to ensure a first class service.

We will be happy to discuss with you and provide you a solution to your children’s schooling needs.
