On-base Information

Pets - Marine Corps Order P11000.22 Ch 6 pertains to pets and should be reviewed by everyone wanting to live in on-base housing. All residents who live or plan to live in on-base housing must abide by the order. The order identifies restricted breed pets and the criteria all pets must meet prior to being authorized to move into on-base housing. A copy of the section pertaining to pets can be viewed by clicking on the attached link.

Utilities – In 1998, the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) set forth the policy for the payment of utilities in Public Private Venture (PPV) housing to encourage energy efficiency in privatized housing units. The Resident Energy Conservation Program (RECP) represents the Navy’s next step in establishing an energy conservation program in PPV housing consistent with OSD policy. The RECP is designed to set a reasonable range for normal electricity consumption in PPV housing units for the style home they are living. Residents whose electricity consumption falls within the 10% above and 10% below the normal electricity usage will not pay any out of pocket expense. The program requires residents to pay the difference for electrical consumption that is more than 10 percent above the average usage. Residents whose electrical consumption falls below the 10% normal electricity range will receive a rebate of the difference. You can view the Fact Sheet for RECP which includes frequently asked questions. RECP FACT SHEETS

Waiting Lists – At present most categories are available for immediate occupancy. When the need for a waitlist is determined, the wait list will be posted within the Military Housing Office along with wait times.

Off-base Information
Off-base housing is available for just about any style or taste you may have. The area is full of local charm, historical sites and various festivals and events the whole family can enjoy. You can visit www.beaufortonline.com for additional information on Beaufort and the surrounding area. Off-base housing units consist of duplexes, apartment complexes, single family homes and townhomes. Price and amenities vary by location. If you are interested in off-base housing, you can utilize Homes.mil at www.homes.mil . You will need to register in order to view listings. The Military Housing Office is available to assist you with registration and teach you how to navigate the site. You will find a variety of housing options which includes amenities, property descriptions pictures of the home, maps, links to schools and contact information. Most landlords require a 1 year lease and will not allow you to break a lease to accept privatized housing. Make sure the lease does have a Military Clause which will allow you to break a lease for PCS Orders out of the area. You should speak with a MHO Referral Specialist prior to signing a lease. Their expertise may be beneficial to you when seeking off base housing.

Renter’s insurance is advised for all personnel regardless if you rent in the local community or if you are a Resident with AMCC at Tri-Command Communities. Most landlords and property owners cover only structural damages and not personal belongings owned by the tenant. AMCC at Tri-Command has a limited renters insurance policy for all on-base residents. You will need to read the policy to see what is covered.
