    Renting to the MoD in Bristol

    Does any one know how the Ministry of Defence in Bristol finds flats, houses, etc. for military personnel on postings there? I'd like to rent my flat to them (or to them via an agent) as I’ve heard they pay good rates, but for the life of me I can't find which agent deals with this sort of thing, nor can I find the department within the MoD which manages this. Thanks.

      Try instead the accommodation dept.

      By the way you can't draft an AST to the MOD if they were to be your tenants.
      The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

          Not sure that they would necessarily be military as such - presumably the OP is interested in getting his mitts on the huge number of staff at the Abbey Wood complex, who I expect are largely civilians?

          I imagine that the Human Resources dept will be what's needed. I tried this tack myself once (unsuccessfully) with a large multinational located in my area - can't remember the exact outcome of the phonecall now except that I spoke to the right people but got the brush-off!

            Abbey Wood has got it's own intranet system, get friendly with a member of staff who can get you "advertised" on there ....

              The people to contact are HCR Countrywide Mobility based in Copenhagen Court, New Street, Basingstoke Tel: 01256 812700. They should be able to tell you who the local MOD contact is for rental properties in your area.

              Dealing with the MoD can be both lucrative and frustrating. First things to know are that they will not usually pay any admin fees, they will not pay a deposit, rent is paid monthly from the day they first occupy and depending on who their tenants will be, serving personnel or civilian, family or sharers, they may require gardening to be included (which you add to the rent)

              Rent is always paid on time.

              The inventory, like any let, is very important when dealing with the MoD for the reason below.

              Check outs are done in military fashion with the local contact usually acting as the MoDs representative, they will use an Occupation End Certificate to register any issues. This is your only chance to claim any repairs or cleaning from them; if you miss something then forget about it; they will not entertain any claim that is not marked on the OEC
              My advice is not based on formal legal training but experience gained in 20+ years in the letting industry.
