A key in a sealed envelope for emergency purposes may be left at the Robins II Family Housing Office.
Unless you've properly cleared your quarters the allotment will automatically start back up the next month. However, any past due rent for the month in which your allotment was stopped is due immediately.
We require written documentation of your deployment status stating you are deployed for more than 90 days as well as a proper 30-day written notice to vacate. If the Service Member is not available the spouse will need a Power of Attorney to submit documentation.
Written notice is required before vacating quarters and should be given at our management office as soon as you are aware of your moving arrangements (ideally, 30 days prior to your lease expiration date). In the case of deployment, PCS, etc., contact our office at as soon as you are notified; we will assist you in the process.
Your spouse will need Power of Attorney in order to sign for quarters on post, start the allotment for BAH, and pay the prorated rent. Please make sure we have contact numbers for your spouse. You’ll also need to make sure your spouse knows how to contact and set up your transportation appointment.

Both members will receive BAH. The senior member receives it at the with-dependent rate while the junior member receives it at the without-dependent rate. Under current Department of Defense rules only the senior member's BAH at the with-dependent rate is used to calculate the rent amount. The family may keep the BAH of the junior member.
Your rent includes all normal monthly expenses, except electric and gas utilities.
Yes, late fees apply for rent and all other charges that are not paid in a timely manner
Your rent is the BAH you receive minus the Utility Allowance. BAH is based on rank and area of assignment not on the size of the home.
In the event of a promotion, the Service Member may request a move to a base house commensurate with his or her new rank. The member’s rent will be increased to match the increased BAH. You must notify management within 30 days of your promotion.
In the event of a demotion, the Service Member will pay the decreased BAH amount for rent, but must notify the management office in writing within 30 days.
Residents may be evicted for non-payment, egregious acts, or failure to follow Community Policies. The Command is involved in ALL eviction proceedings.
BAH is an entitlement and is not counted as taxable income. However, it will be included in gross income which means programs based on an individual's gross income may be affected.
You may direct your questions to the bookkeeper.
Am I going to lose money if the current year BAH amount for my grade and ZIP code is less than I was getting last year?
No. BAH rate protection does not allow reductions in housing allowances as long as the Service Member maintains uninterrupted eligibility for BAH. If your duty assignment station, your rank, and your family status do not change you will always receive the higher BAH amount.
The following circumstances change your status and interrupt your eligibility for the allowance: if you are promoted or demoted your rate protection resets for your new rank; if your dependency status changes your rate protection is adjusted to the new status.
Yes. Rent is assessed only for the days that you live in housing.
For Service Members in the Army, Navy, and Air Force the rent is paid by allotment. We utilize Military Assistance Company (MAC), an organization approved by the military services to manage the allotment process. Your BAH on your LES is an entitlement and is listed as a payment to Robins Family Housing. The advantages of payment by allotment are that you will not be required to pay a security deposit and your rent will be due in arrears. For example, your January rent is received on February 1st.
How does military housing privatization affect a service member’s Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH)?
Privatization does not affect the amount of BAH that is paid to the service member. Prior to privatization, service members did not receive BAH if they lived in military housing. Under the Military Housing Privatization Initiative, all service members choosing to live in privatized military housing receive their BAH and use the BAH to pay the privatized housing provider. The rent payment (usually equal to BAH) will be automatically transferred to Robins Family Housing at the end of each month; this process will be performed and monitored by Military Assistance Company, LLC (MAC), the world's largest processor of automatic payroll deductions for military and civil service employees. The BAH is used by the company to maintain and operate the existing housing, as well as to fund the construction of the new houses and amenities.
Because foreign students don’t receive BAH and cannot utilize paying by allotment, how do they pay rent?
Foreign students will pay rent monthly by check or money order--made payable to Robins II Family Housing LLC.
The government determines the service member's BAH based on the cost of similar rental property near the base, typical utilities, and his/her rank. An allotment from the service member's account is set up upon lease signing to pay rent.

The lease is a standard resident agreement used by all privatized military housing and conventional (civilian) rental properties. Residents are required to sign a lease in order to reside in housing.
