" The Home Office introduced new rules on applications from people looking to extend their leave on the basis of their investments. These rules took effect on 29 March 2019, and the evidence needed in support of your extension application will depend on when you were granted your Tier 1 (Investor) entry clearance. For example, different rules for evidence of your investments, and balance of funds will apply if you were granted leave to enter or leave to remain under the Rules in place before 6 November 2014 and you apply for the extension before 06 April 2020. Likewise, if you were granted entry clearance or leave to remain under the Rules in place after 06 November 2014, and apply for your extension before 06 April 2020, a different set of requirements will need to be met.

These applications can be complex and must be supported with the correct documentary evidence.

Our legal team at OTB Legal have a great track record of getting successful outcomes for applications for extensions to live in the UK on the basis of your investments (Tier 1). Why not talk to us about your application? "

Before we take on a case we always want to establish what the right kind of application is for you and this is what the Investigation Stage is all about.

We find out more about you and what you want to achieve. It is an informal discussion which can be delivered how you want it, whether that is over the phone, using video conferencing or at our easily accessible office - it is entirely your choice.

This stage is completely free and there is no obligation to take on our paid services. At the end of the Investigation Stage you will have a clear plan as to the range of applications available, the costs involved and how likely you are to get a successful outcome.
