hello, i posted this on the army net website and was advised to put it on here as i would probably get more help: after being posted from Germany to the uk i was given a private hiring as there are very few MQ's where i am. On arrival however, the condition of the private hiring was far from ideal, but i was told by the nice people at countrywide mobility who are responsible for private hirings that it could take many weeks to source an alternative, in the meantime i could put my furniture into storage and stay elsewhere at my own cost!! I basically had to take the house with a wife and kids, but was told i could move after a minimum 6 months occupancy. after the 6 months was up, a field surveyor decided that such was the deteriorating condition of the house i could move immediately as it was becoming unhealthy to live there. however, the RAO decided that under no circumstances could i claim disturbance allowance so i was forced to foot the bill myself. Surely when i am moving because the accomodation is of such a poor standard it should be at the army's expense and ot mine, after all they (via countrywide mobility) sourced the house in the first place, and then decided it wasnt fit to live in? it wasnt cheap to move, and on top of all that they had the cheek to charge me full quarter charges (5.85 daily)for a house where the windows didnt even close!!
