Thank you for your reply.

Yes you may, you can apply 28 days prior to you meeting the requirements. Therefore in your case you will be applying after holding indefinite leave to remain for more than a year.

I hope this answers your question, if so kindly rate my answer positively. If however, you feel that the answer does not cover all the points raised in your question, please DO NOT rate my answer negatively, I will be happy to answer further question until you are satisfied with my answer.

Kind regards
