I have been using a Geoserver for years with my developers querying it using lat/long to get US parcel boundaries from a SQL Server store. I got a dataset with UK parcel boundaries but it's in EPSG:27700 (UTM). I can query it fine using UTM values but I need to use lat/long and I'm not sure what the trick is. The Geoserver lists the native SRS as EPSG:4326 for some odd reason. I think it should say EPSG:27700 for native and I want EPSG:4326 for declared, with either "reproject native to declared" or "force declared." Any guesses as to what I'm doing wrong?

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
This could be a case of geoserver can't find implicitly what's an EPSG so it's setting 4326 - try to define it explicitly. If you're using shapefiles create .prj file, if PostGIS convert datatype for column into geometry(Geometry,27700)...
It's just a guess... not enough details in question :)
