There are often many false preconceptions involving moving to Guernsey... Unlike Jersey the process does not depend on your financial status and as a result can be far simpler than thought.The Open Market was established and amended between the years of 1957 and 1969 by the States of Guernsey to create a register of approximately 1,600 homes where any EU National or British citizen can live and work on the island without the need of a local licence.The Housing (Control of Occupation)(Guernsey) Law, 1994 contains, among other things, provisions concerning those dwellings which are eligible to remain inscribed in the 'Open Market' Housing Register.
