At Lexus Law, we recognise that the real estate sector is a key contributor to the UK economy, providing jobs to millions of people. It is an industry that is constantly evolving, and so are the immigration regulations surrounding it. For instance, if you are looking to come to the UK as an investor, we strongly recommend seeking legal counsel as property investments are explicitly prohibited in the visa guidance (though there are exceptions). If you have ambitions to expand an existing property development, real estate, or construction business, our team will provide guidance, training, and representation to ensure you stay compliant with UKVI requirements and avoid penalties.
HOW CAN LEXUS LAW HELP?
- We can advise on the appropriate sponsor licences to apply for and will assist with every step of the application process.
- We provide guidance on how to manage your compliance as a sponsor, including how to conduct thorough Right to Work checks, and can carry out mock immigration audits to help you prepare for UKVI visits and avoid civil penalties.
- For individuals, we can advise on the best visa routes for your situation, whether you will be joining an existing organisation as a Skilled Worker or opening a UK branch of an overseas business as a UK representative or expansion worker.
- We can also provide support and/or representation in the event of sponsor licence suspensions, visa refusals, appeals, and judicial reviews.
