I've lived in the UK years with Indefinite Leave

This answer was rated:

Hi, I've lived in the UK for 35 years with Indefinite Leave to Remain. I now would like to go for my British citizenship, but not sure what form I need or how much it will cost me.
I recently obtained a biometric Residence Permit as the stamp for ILR was in an expired passport and I needed to obtain a new contract. I really don't want to renew my US passport as I never plan to go back there.
Can you advise??
Regards,
Phaedra
Hello,
You may apply for British Citizenship using your expired US passport.
The application form is AN which you may access here:
https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/420256/Form_AN_March_2015.pdf
The application fee is £1005 and you need to use this fee payment form

I would suggest that you apply through the nearest Nationality Checking Service offered by local councils, you should contact your local council to see if they have the NCS service.
May I help further?
