  • broken any UK immigration laws (for example living illegally in the UK)


You may have lost your indefinite leave to remain or enter if you’ve been away from the UK for:

租屋

我係嚟到英國先開始搵屋,基本上隔離十日期間就不斷上網睇租盤,一睇到啱心水嘅就打電話俾經紀,約時間睇樓,順便講埋自己打算搵咩樓盤,睇吓有冇一啲未放上網嘅盤可以預早去睇樓。 第一日出去睇樓,原本約咗兩間,點知出門口嘅時候第一間個經紀就打俾我話嗰間屋今日有人落咗deposits, 所以唔能夠去睇。 第二間屋係喺openrent 找的。直接同個業主deal. 睇完間屋,各方面都唔錯,咁我哋就同個業主傾下一步應該點,點知業主話呢幾日一共有差唔多20人睇咗間屋而嚟緊三四日都繼續有人嚟睇,weekend 佢就會決定租比邊一個。業主又講20人當中已經有6 個話interested, 當中有兩個係香港家庭。 第二日約左睇五間,有車就會方便一啲。其中一間,佢係包傢俬的,個業主都好Nice,佢話月尾會搬走,不過會攞走主人房張床,佢會買嗰張新嘅俾我。不過呢間亦都有好多人睇,更加有一個現在做緊ref. Check.. 有啲agent 係要求有6個月uk bank statements. 有啲agent 係要求有工作證明先至安排你去睇樓。ref. Check 有機會問你過往六年你嘅居住證明。 呢度較為多用post code ,例如話俾agent 知想搵屋在RG12,RG5, RG6 。我一共俾咗六個post code agent 找。 有小朋友嘅家庭就記得問吓Council 你小朋友嘅年紀邊啲學校有位。方便搵屋嘅時候搵返學校附近。 我哋喺隔離嗰10日就直接咁樣上網站搵屋。因為已經喺英國,又有英國電話,啲agent都樂意打返電話俾我。亦試過video live 睇屋。亦試過有一間Agent 公司拒絕,因為冇英國嘅工作證明。 最好有車啦,咁就方便啲.... 我試過... 一日睇左5間..... 每次睇... 大慨10-15分鐘,之後就會揸住架車,兜下周圍.... 試過有一個業主,我睇完之後我表達有意思租,佢就話要等多幾日,因為之前已經約咗一啲人黎睇樓,希望收集晒所有有興趣嘅人,最後一次過揀邊一個可以租佢間屋。 有人話每日check 下right move 有冇咩新盤,我覺得呢個係一個方法,不過如果再想快啲不妨聯絡當地經紀,因為有啲盤未上rightmove, 佢哋都已經可以睇到間屋。有啲地方競爭激烈,我之前睇過一間屋原來已經有六七個人有興趣。所以如果你係第一或者第二個人睇間屋,又盡快決定,咁你可以
