The JSHAO is the MOD’s Tri-Service focal point to provide Service personnel and their dependants with civilian housing information for those wishing to move to civilian accommodation at any time in their career, and for those during resettlement to assist with the transition to civilian life.
Joint Service Housing Advice Office Housing briefs are delivered at various military locations in the UK and Cyprus & across Europe each year.
These briefs are designed to give you the information to help you make informed choices on your civilian housing, the briefings cover the following areas:
- house purchase (including Forces Help to Buy), private rental
- independent financial advice (provided by the Service Insurance and Investment Advisory Panel members), social housing
- affordable home ownership schemes.
These briefs are currently postponed until further notice.
