Stop the unjustified increase of service family accommodation charges
This petition had 44 supporters
The cost of living in service family accommodation is set to increase by more than 100% in alot of cases by 2020. One of the 'perks' of military service is subsidised housing. Personally my rent is set to increase from £2.98 per day to £6.97 per day. I agree this isn't a lot for rent monthly, but the unjustified increase is extortionate and a money making scheme. I do not choose to live in SFA, I own a house but was posted away from that area in line with my job role, I am expected to move every 3 years.
The solution to this would be for an independent body to asses just how Carrilion Amey have arrived at their conclusions for pricing various bands. I do not understand how my house goes from the lowest band to one of the highest band properties overnight! I have no choice to live here but can't do anything about the fact the rent is increasing but the standard of living is staying the same. If private landlords were increasing rents to this degree there would be public outcry for the government to step in.
This is directly affecting morale and retention in the military however not one person seems to be interested in doing anything about it.
