I am an EU citizen living in the UK, but have not yet got settled or pre-settled status. Will I be able to apply for jobs or rent accommodation?
Until 30 June 2021, your EU passport or identity card is the only proof you will need to get a job or rent accommodation. Employers and landlords are not allowed to ask you for evidence of (pre-)settled status until July 2021 - see the rules on employing EU citizens in the UK and checking a tenant’s right to rent.
We do recommend you apply for settled or pre-settled status as soon as possible, because after July 2021 if you have not applied you will have lost lawful residence to be in the UK with potentially very serious consequences.
