Many houses in Italy do not have built-in closets. The Furnishing Management Section (FMS) authorizes a limited number of wardrobes, however, they do take up room, thus limiting space. There are no local storage companies, plan accordingly for excess. Each house has 3.3 Kw maximum. We recommend you use dual voltage appliances, if possible. The Furnishing Management Office provides two step-down transformers for 110-volt appliances. U.S. Standard (110-volt) lamps can be used, but they must have a 220-volt bulb, sold at the Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) and off base stores.
Your sponsor is the key to successful house hunting by providing their local area knowledge and in some cases, transportation. GPS devices are made available on a first-come-first-serve basis through the MHO and Outdoor Recreation. These instruments are normally checked out for a period of 24 hours. After you move into your home, the MHO is available for on-going assistance with translation services should you need to communicate with your landlord.
Community Housing Units
Housing in Italy is definitely different than in the United States. The Housing Office continues to work with local landlords to include typical American-style amenities such as air conditioning, light fixtures, adequate kitchen counter, medicine cabinets.
Minimum Adequacy Standards
The Housing Office inspects all community housing to ensure it meets minimum adequacy standards and is considered suitable for Aviano member occupancy. If any deficiencies are noted, the landlord will be given the opportunity to correct them. If, however, all deficiencies are not corrected, the unit will not be deemed acceptable and cannot be listed.
Furnishings Management Section (FMS)
FMS provides short-term furnishings support (90-days) while awaiting house hold goods arrival. Additionally, appliances (washer, dryer, stove, refrigerator), furniture (wardrobes & transformers) are provided for the length of your tour. All appliances must be maintained in good working order and cleaned regularly to ensure they function as intended. Customers must ensure control of issued items and are financially responsible for excessive damage beyond fair wear and tear. FMS goal is to provide clean, functional appliances that last through each member's tour. FMS also has an appliance repair program for in-home service calls.
Personal Property Insurance
While personal property insurance is not mandatory, it is highly encouraged. You should obtain legal liability and personal property insurance for your possessions and should choose options and amounts that best fit your needs and lifestyle. Italy has a fairly reliable electrical system, but they do experience power outages during inclement weather and most older homes do not have switches that automatically reset your breaker when the power comes back on. Therefore, it is imperative that you have a backup plan when you to TDY or on Leave. Renters insurance should help defray the cost of unexpected outages.
There are several types of insurance (personal property, liability, pet insurance and legal representation) members may purchase to protect their property and tenant rights. We strongly recommend you consider purchasing commercial insurance to protect yourself in case of fire or other major loss. a common policy for this type of coverage would be renter's liability insurance which would cover your personal property and damages to your rental home.
In Aviano, if you choose to use realtor services, discuss fees up front, as some realtors charge a finder's fee and government reimbursement is not authorized.
