Applying for Privatized Housing:
You may apply for housing by faxing, mailing, or e-mailing an application package to the housing office. An application package consists of a DD-1746 (Application for Assignment to Housing), your Orders, the Sex Offender Disclosure Form (SOD), and your up-to-date Record of Emergency Data sheets. These Emergency Data sheets are known as the NAVPERS 1070/602 (Page-2) for Navy and the DD Form 93 (RED) for Army, Air Force and Marines. Coast Guard personnel will use the CG-4107A (BAH/Dependency Worksheet). If you plan to have your spouse sign for you, they will need a Special Power of Attorney (POA) giving authority to conduct real estate transactions for you.
When available, geographical bachelors may reside in privatized housing. Contact our office for details.
Upon detaching we will need a copy of your detaching documentation. When we receive your application package, you will receive a confirmation from our office by phone, fax or email. If you send your package without your detaching documentation, you will be placed on the waiting list for your bedroom/rank entitlement using the last day of the reporting month on your orders as an estimated control date. Once you provide the detaching documentation to us, your control date on the waiting list will be adjusted. Your control date is determined by the date of detachment from your last permanent duty station. In order to keep this date, you must report to the Housing Welcome Center within 30 days of check-in to your new Command. Reporting after the 30 days will result in your waitlist date reverting to the date you walk into the office. Please keep us updated of any changes in your contact information.
Estimated Wait Times:
Please see the designated times for your rank and bedroom entitlement. Wait times are subject to change, so check periodically for updates. If you have any questions, we can be reached at (516) 486-2022; Fax (516) 486-5135 or Toll Free (800) 498-1084.
Balfour Beatty Communities Resident Complaint Process: For current residents of Balfour Beatty Communities, please follow the below procedures:
1. If you have a complaint, please submit it in writing to the Balfour Beatty Communities Office and carbon copy (cc) the Navy Housing Welcome Center.
2. A Balfour Beatty Communities Representative should contact you to discuss your complaint.
3. The Navy Housing Welcome Center will assist you provided you have submitted a written complaint to the Balfour Beatty Communities Office and your complaint was not resolved with the Community Manager.
Our office will review your community lease to insure you have an adequate military clause and a reasonable buy-out clause. We can also explain information that may change from state to state, i.e. renters insurance, deposits and fees, etc. to insure you are informed of local landlord/tenant laws.
If you rent, your landlord's insurance does not cover your personal items, therefore it is strongly recommended you purchase renters insurance. Renters insurance is reasonable in cost and not only covers your personal effects but the family, pets and in some cases visitors from accidents/injuries while in your home. You should discuss with an insurance agent what coverage is best for you. Protect yourself by protecting your family and your goods.
A renter's insurance policy may only cover your personal property. It may not protect you if you should accidentally damage the home/apartment/condominium you are living in or if you should suffer some type of a lawsuit resulting from your negligence within your home. All families are encouraged to take the need for a supplemental general liability policy seriously. An accident which results in fire or flood damage could result in monetary damages, which could become a financial burden to you for the rest of your life. A general liability policy is inexpensive and well worth the cost.
