Privatized Housing Government Housing Unaccompanied Housing Housing in the Local Community

Privatized Housing
At Dyess AFB, the privatized housing is located off base and is approximately 2 miles away from the installation. Quail Hollow owns the off base housing and is responsible for maintaining, repairing, constructing and managing the community. In addition to your option to purchase and rent housing in the local community, you now may choose to live in privatized housing by signing a tenant lease agreement with Quail Hollow.

For comprehensive information about the privatized housing community at Dyess AFB, visit the Quail Hollow website. The website provides information you need to know about the homes and amenities available in the privatized housing community.

Applying for Privatized Housing
Contact the HMO as soon as you know you are moving to Dyess AFB. The government housing team will provide you the latest information about privatized housing and details about the application process. The HMO will also update you on any base specific policies regarding residing in privatized housing.

Community Amenities
Privatized housing is comparable to housing in the local community and provides a wide variety of amenities and support services.

Community features include two community centers, pools, a spa, laundry facilities, basketball courts and tot-lots. These are just some of the amenities you will find at Quail Hollow.

As a resident of privatized housing, contact the Property Management Office to obtain more specific information on the services available at your location.

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 metered and you will be billed directly for gas and electric. There are many options to choose for electric consumption, as occupants are free to choose which company they want to provide their electricity needs. Atmos is the sole provider for gas consumption. Since the homes are metered, you will retain a portion of the BAH to pay the utilities directly. The utility allowance is determined based on 110 percent of the estimated average utility cost (gas and electric) for each unit type. The more energy you conserve, the more money you keep in your pocket! For more information about your utilities, please contact the Property Management Office.

Personal Property Insurance
You need to obtain legal liability and personal property insurance for your possessions and should choose the options and amounts that best fit your needs and lifestyle.

The property manager does carry property insurance and comprehensive general liability insurance. Before purchasing your insurance, please consult the Property Management Office for more information about coverage.
