Emily M. shares about housing off installation: During your stay at Fort Benning you may have several housing options. You may live either on or off post. When living on post you forfeit your BAH or Basic Allowance for Housing. If you decide to live off post and if you are eligible you will receive a BAH. This housing allowance is provided to help cover the cost of living off post.
Fort Benning Off Post Housing - You may decide to either rent a home or apartment or purchase a home.
Fort Benning homes for rent - A list of off post homes for rent is available online to assist you in choosing the rental with the right amenities price bedrooms bathrooms and square footage.
Fort Benning Apartments for Rent - Some properties offer military discounts and usually the discount is stated on the listing for your convenience.
Fort Benning homes for sale - Building equity in a home offers both officers and enlisted soldiers more financial freedom and lessens the tax burden.

The resident and an FBFC representative will complete a Move-In Inspection verifying the condition of the home upon move-in. They will inspect the house together and make note of any damages to the house so that FBFC can perform any necessary repairs. If repairs are not practical the Move-In Report will note the existing damage so that the new resident will not be held responsible for any pre-existing damage when they move-out. After a thorough inspection of the home the resident shall provide written acceptance of the Premises “as is" except for those conditions noted on the Move-in Inspection. No agreements have been made regarding future repairs unless specified in the Move-In Inspection.
FBFC requires a written 60-day notice of intent to vacate prior to vacating the home including at the end of the lease term. Immediate permanent change of station (PCS) orders or discharge from active service will be an exception to this policy and the 60-day notice provision will be waived. Residents can obtain the notice to vacate form from a staff member in their neighborhood management office who can answer any questions regarding the move-out process.
Residents are normally required to visit the neighborhood management office when delivering the notice of intent to vacate in order to coordinate the actions required to clear family housing including terminating the service member’s BAH allotment scheduling the move-out inspection and providing forwarding information.
