    SSFA - Barrow

    Hi all,
    Just wondering if anyone has any idea how SSFA works? Hubby may be being drafted to barrow towards the end of the year and there are no quarters there.
    Are we entitled to SSFA if the draft is over 6mths and how would it work?
    Am going to chat to DE at some point, just wondered if anyone knew!

    Thanks

    Hiya

    We are in SSFA at the moment and have been for the last 2 years. There were no MQ's available when we moved here. DE have a company working for them called HCR. They will look for a private hiring for you. They have to give you a choice of 2 I think. We came down here for a day and met the agent who took us to look at the houses and we chose which one we wanted. You pay Grade 1 rent and the Army pay the rest. In some ways it is good. We are in a massive house in a lovely village and have loved it. However if you have any maintenance problems it is up to your landlord to sort them out so things can sometimes take a while (especially if your landlord is a tight arse like ours!!!)

    Hope this helps.
