Bored this afternoon, started reading archived letters to Soldier Mag... saw this one below, from a disgruntled chap who claims to be paying Â£1120 a month in accom charges? Surely a typo, and should read Â£120 a month? But its repeated a coupled of times and surely nobody with half a brain would complain about paying Â£120 a month for rent incl utilities? Anybody shed any light on this? Below extracted from SoldierMag website? clicky linky thing Â£1,120 a month for my room is bit steep I WAS explaining to a young private the new format for our pay statement and noticed he was paying only Â£70 a month for his quarter. I asked about the cost of quarters from colleagues and found they ranged from Â£67 to Â£250. So why do I pay Â£1,120 for one room with a shower? Some pay less for a three bed-roomed house. I understand the cheaper quarter charges reflect the condition of these houses, but Â£1,120 a month for a room is expensive. I still have council tax and utility bills to pay, and a mortgage. â Name and address supplied. Brig Jamie Gordon, DPS(A), responds: You have answered your own question: charges for both married and single accommodation (those for single accommodation include utilities charges) are significantly affected by the condition it is in. Charges are set by the AFPRB. They are abated when compared with the commercial market to take account of lack of choice and so on.
