(OP-44) LEASING FAMILY HOUSING IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES
|Publication Date:||20 July 1978|
Leasing of family housing in foreign countries can be accomplished under the authority contained in Title 10, United States Code 2675. Housing leased under this authority must be for the benefit of the United States and, excepting lease construction housing discussed in paragraph 5 below, is limited to top command assignments in cases where Government quarters commensurate with the position of the proposed occupant are not available and are required, or to situations involving undue hardship. Generally, undue hardship is considered to exist only where:
a. Local custom requires advance rental payments for three months or more; or
b. Local restrictions preclude individual leases to foreign nationals; or
c. Living conditions are dangerous or unhealthful; or
d. There has been or will be a rapid influx of personnel as the result of force deployment.
