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. Scott Family Housing utilizes a third-party billing service to manage and collect your utility allowance based on personal consumption. 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 Scott Family Housing Office.

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

Scott Family Housing will provide each resident with renter's insurance in the amount of $20,000 for a loss of personal property with a deductible of $250. The policy will not cover high value items such as jewelry, silverware, and antiques. If you have high value items, it is recommended you acquire additional insurance. Residents are encouraged to retain records and proof of personal property items in the event of loss

Before purchasing your insurance, please consult the Property Management Office for more information about coverage.
