Residential Status is broken down as per the below.
Buying or leasing property in Jersey is a process governed by a strict set of laws.
Under the Control of the ‘Housing and Work Law’ there are four new categories which determine where you can work and live. The current qualifying period for obtaining housing qualifications is 10 years. All existing ‘A-H’, ‘A-J’ and ‘A-K’, also known as ‘freehold, flying freehold or share transfer’ properties are now ‘qualified’. In general all other property is ‘registered’ which is also known as ‘unqualified’.
In general regulations are broken down into the following categories:
Entitled: previously A-H Category
Licensed: previously J Category
Entitled to work: previously Non-Qualified
Registered: previously Non-Qualified
