For comprehensive information about the privatized housing community at Barksdale, visit the Barksdale Family Housing website. The website provides information you need to know about the homes and amenities available in the privatized housing community.

Paying Rent for Privatized Housing

Similar to living in the local community, you will sign a tenant lease agreement, typically for a one-year term. Your lease includes a military clause and a lease termination clause. You pay your monthly rent by authorizing an allotment of your BAH that is paid directly to the Property Manager. If your move occurs prior to the allotment start date, then you will need to pay the pro-rated rent directly to the Property Manager. The Tenant Lease Agreement spells out all relevant rent payment terms and conditions.

Gas and Electric Utilities
At this location, homes in the community are not metered and your rent will include these utility costs, up to your full BAH amount. For more information about your utilities, please contact the Property Management Office.

During the Initial Development Period (IDP), Barksdale Family Housing will bear the responsibility for all of the utility cost to include water, waste water, gas and electricity. Following the IDP, the tenants will be responsible for paying for their gas and electricity consumption. Tenant utility allowance will be based on 110% of average estimated electric and gas costs. The utility allowance allows members to pay for the cost of electric and gas without experiencing any costs beyond their housing allowances. The tenant is responsible for managing their energy consumption within the established utility allowance.

Personal Property Insurance
Hunt Military Communities LLC includes $100,000 in liability and $20,000 in personal property insurance in their lease agreement as part of your monthly payment. We strongly urge you to obtain additional legal liability and personal property insurance for your possessions. You should choose the options and amounts that best fit your needs and lifestyle. Before purchasing additional insurance, please consult the Property Management Office for more information about coverage.
