The rules of entitlement to occupy Service family accommodation need to be improved.  At present a family can apply to occupy a married quarter but own their own house in the same area which they then rent out.

Why is this idea important?

The MOD pay vast sums of money to Annington homes to lease SFA and enforcing a family to live in their own property would then reduce the rents and maintenance costs of SFA.  In certain areas the MOD do not have sufficient SFA and those with their own properties penilise those who have to rent privately due to greed and profit. This happens across all ranks of the forces.
