Leaving Stuttgart | Rental Contract Termination

Procedures to clear On Post Housing
Service members are required to notify the Housing Office of their intent to terminate housing 60 to 120 days prior to their PCS.   A pre-inspection can be completed 30-45 days prior to service members anticipated departure.  Service members are required to notify the Housing Office upon receipt of orders, (PCS, EROD, and Retirement orders) to schedule a pre-inspection.   Upon scheduling the final termination inspection, the service member will receive a TLA briefing indicating the authorized days of outgoing TLA.   The service member is responsible for coordinating temporary lodging. 

The purpose of the pre inspection is to inform service members on the process needed to clear Government quarters.   The housing inspector will brief service members cleaning standards and provide any documentation needed to clear your quarters.  We at the housing office recommend the service member schedule a pre-inspection in order to manage any housing expectations which they may have prior to departure.

  1. When scheduling a pre-inspection, provide the counselor a copy of your orders. (PCS, EROD, Retirement orders)
  2. Housing counselor will schedule your pre-inspection in our housing database (eMH) and provide you with a date on when the housing inspector will come to the quarters to access damages and provide you with the standards needed to clear quarters.
  3. Housing counselor will brief you on TLA entitlements based on type of orders provided and will explain coordination of movement of HHG and delivery of Government loaner furniture.

Final Inspection
We have taken pride in providing you and your family the best Housing possible. Our commitment to your family began the day our inspectors walked through your residence with the previous occupants in order to ensure that they were passing on the keys of a well-cared home to you.  A fellow Service Member and their family will make your old home their new home. Please share our pride in their new home with us.
