Hi, i was due to move out of my married quarter in april 09 but due to my son havin a rare medical condition, we got an extension on the house for another year. within this time i was living in the block as married unacommpanied. now last friday we handed our quarter back in and moved my family into private rented accomodation, i then put my disturbance allowance claim in of 1048 but have been refused this, and have been told because i am not livin in the house, even thou my family is, i am not entitled to it, which i think is wrong. i have read through JSP752 and came acroos this which tells me i am entitled to it.
