The Housing Office at your gaining installation can assist in your transition to the United Kingdom. The Housing Office provides on-base housing if available, rental information, referral listing, on-site joint property inspections upon move in, assist with tenancy agreements for off-base housing and arbitrate disputes between members and landlords. We provide temporary loaner furniture and permanent appliances. Our staff will assist you with any housing-related problems.

Upon notification of your new assignment to a 501st CSW installation, fill out a DD Form 1746, Application for Assignment to Housing, and ask your current Housing Office to fax it to your gaining installation. Average waiting times for Military Family Housing are subject to change.

If you plan to live on the economy, Right Move is a United Kingdom site most letting agents or property managers use to advertise available properties. Should you go through a letting agent make sure to let the Housing Office know so they can review your lease and inspect the property prior to your acceptance and move in date. Using Right Move normally requires you to work through an estate agent to let a house or flat. Working through estate agents usually requires two month's rent, a non-refundable application fee and a credit check fee - all monies are due on the day of move in. Each installation's Housing Office also has a referral room where you will find a display of available properties or alternatively you can request a copy of the listings from their database.  

If deciding to live on the economy, visit the Overseas Housing Allowance calculator to determine the maximum amount of OHA you can receive.
