Government Housing Unaccompanied Housing Housing in the Local Community

The Housing Management Office (HMO) provides all DoD personnel with a personalized service to assist in locating suitable housing in your new host country. Moving to a new country can often be confusing and stressful; however, it can also be exciting. Living off base provides members and families the chance to experience a new culture and make friends with their host country neighbors. The HMO will assist you every step of the way to help you find your new home in the local community.

Housing Services
Contact the HMO as soon as you know you are moving. The government housing team will provide you the latest information on the local housing situation as well as local laws governing off-base housing. The HMO partners with landlords, realtors and property managers to make sure you receive the most current information about the local housing market.

The HMO monitors off-base rental listings to ensure that they are safe and adequate.

The HMO can assist you by:
- Providing translation services to establish appointments to view available units
- Negotiating lease contracts
- Assisting in establishing utility services
- Providing furnishings support. See Furnishings Management for a list of the Duration of Tour Items available.
- Off-Base Briefing
- Provides Tour and Quarters Safety Inspection
- Translate between Member and Landlord if it is required.

After you move into your home, the HMO is available for on-going assistance with translation services should you need to communicate with your landlord.

Community Housing Units
The HMO provides up-to-date listings of available economy units, translation services, and landlord/tenant mediation.

Osan Air Base's Housing Referral Service is a part of the HMO, assisting all employees working at Osan AB to find suitable nondiscriminatory rental housing in the local commuting area. All accompanied and unaccompanied Department of Defense (DoD) employees must report to the HMO before entering into any rental, lease, or purchase agreement for off-base housing. Reporting to the HMO is important, primarily to protect DoD personnel against discrimination and ensure they understand their rights and obligations when living in the local community.

For information about the housing allowances that financially support your move, see Referral and Relocation Assistance.

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. Before purchasing your insurance, please consult the HMO for more information about coverage.

School Information
For families, we understand that where your children attend school plays a large factor in the decision of where to live.
