If you buy a house, it doesnt help you get permanent residency until you have stayed in the UK the requisite years to obtain ILR. have you?

Hey Van.Persi,
i 2nd ''balajo'' on this one, you may find you struggle to buy a house as you don't have the permanent residence unless you're buying with a British spouse/partner however as a joint application.

hello there mate

am in a similar situation where i bought a property and am applying for ilr but the property does not seem to bother the authorities at all on making a decison about whether i should stay in the country or not because there is no where in the rules that states that by owning a property you are entitled to ilr, i think it can be a contributing factor but nothing significant
