When renting in town, ask for a military clause within your leasing agreement. One type of clause allows you to break the lease if you receive permanent change of station orders, and the other allows you to do so if base housing becomes available.
Ask about the military clause prior to signing a lease, so you are clear on what is required if you need to break it. The majority of rentals require 30 days written notice prior to the first of the next month that rent is due before vacating.
It is also recommended that you ask for a base housing clause that would allow you to break the lease if housing becomes available. Rental companies or private homeowners are not required to agree to one, but it is worth asking about.
Ask about any break-lease clauses prior to signing an agreement, so you are clear on what is required if or when you need to be released from one.
