Hello,

I am a solicitor.

Do you have permanent residency/ILR?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Not in the UK at the moment
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 15 days ago.

In that case, you would first need to apply for a UK spouse visa based on your marriage to an Irish citizen and then settlement afdter 5 years in the UK at which point you will then be able to apply for UK citizenship.

Owning a property in the UK does not entitle you to Citizenship.

May I help further?
