Living accommodation within the army

#1
Hello
I am going to apply for the army and hope I am successful in the recruitment process. Cut to the chase I am married and once I have passed out and finished phase 2 training.
Will I get accommodation for both of us?
If so what are the Costs?
Do you have to pay Electricity and Gas separately or are they included in rent?
ETC....
Just thought some of you already serving or who have served maybe able to give me an insight on the situation. The more info the better ;)

Thanks in advance

Service Families' Accommodation

The Army provides Service Families' Accommodation for servicemen and women who are

* married or in civil partnerships
* widowed, divorced or separated with dependant children

The accommodation is usually close to, or within 10 miles of, their duty station. Most are fully furnished, though tenants may use their own furniture if they wish.

Existing householders may decide to continue living in their own home.

Yes you will get a married quarter which the cost of monthly is dependant on where you are living,size of house etc. This is deducted from your wages direct along with council tax. Electric, Gas etc you and wifey pay for , hope this helps

The house size will depend on how many kids you have, The rent is pretty cheap, but Utilities have to be paid for by you (Gas/Electricity and such like)
Rent is taken directly from your wages so you dont really notice it.
You will have to pay for your first move but after that the Army will move you whenever you are posted.
