I have pre-settled status but cannot upgrade to settled status, what happens when my pre-settled status expires?

If you are not able to convert your pre-settled status to settled status for any reason, for example, you have broken your continuous residence period, your pre-settled status will expire 5 years after the date it was granted. To continue lawfully residing in the UK, you would need to apply for a new visa under the new Immigration System.
