Moving Into SFA
Click here for information on the DIO website about moving into Service Families Accommodation.
The MOD has put together a comprehensive guide for those in Service Family Accommodation. The guide is broken down into several booklets, each of which focuses on a specific element of living in SFA in Great Britain. Booklet B – Moving into Service Family Accommodation covers the application process and the move in procedure.
More useful details on moving into your SFA are available in the Move In leaflet for SFA.
SFA Welcome Pack: The SFA Welcome Pack has been updated. It contains a move-in checklist and Observation Form, useful contacts, and further information on looking after your new home. The pack is made available at move in and can also be found here.
Standards and Repairs
Upon arrival at your new SFA, your accommodation should be of a certain standard of repair and cleanliness. The full list of move-in standards can be found within the MHS Guide to Housing Maintenance: Service Families Accommodation Maintenance Guide - Annex D. However, it is your responsibility to register your dissatisfaction with the condition of your new SFA with the DIO Housing Officer on Move-in day or within 14-days. For information on how to make a complaint, please see the Making a Complaint section.

SFA can be provided furnished, part furnished, or unfurnished – with the charges adjusted accordingly - see JSP 464 (Annex B to Chapter 7) for charges. It is straightforward to arrange furniture as any requirements should be stated at the time of application. There is a range of items available.
