Hello and thank you for your question.
While it used to be 4 years leave under this category before applying for ILR it is now 5 years.
The relevant rule provides:
Refusal of extension of stay as a domestic worker in a private household159F. An extension of stay as a domestic worker may be refused if the Secretary of State is not satisfied that each of the requirements of paragraph 159D is met.Indefinite leave to remain for a domestic worker in a private household159G. Indefinite leave to remain may be granted, on application, to a domestic worker in a private household provided that:(i) he has spent a continuous period of 5 years in the United Kingdom employed in this capacity; and(ii) he has met the requirements of paragraph 159A throughout the 5 year period; and(iii) he is still required for employment as a domestic worker in a private household, as certified by the current employer; and(iv) he has sufficient knowledge of the English language and sufficient knowledge about life in the United Kingdom, unless he is under the age of 18 or aged 65 or over at the time he makes his application, and(v) he does not have one or more unspent convictions within the meaning of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.Refusal of indefinite leave to remain for a domestic worker in a private household159H. Indefinite leave to remain in the United Kingdom for a domestic worker in a private household is to be refused if the Secretary of State is not satisfied that each of the requirements of paragraph 159G is met.
Accordingly I would advise that prior to the expiry of your visa you seek to renew for another year and then apply for ILR as a domestic worker
