SFA OCCUPANTS INSTALLING ENCROACHMENTS WITHOUT PERMISSION
All occupants are to be reminded that SFA is MOD property. All occupants (military and civilian) must obtain permission to install an encroachment in their SFA such as air conditioning. In general, permission will not be granted to install permanent encroachments such as patios as the MOD does not have funding to repair or remove structures when they fail.
The Licence to Occupy Agreement, states that you are not to:
Erect a TV,satelliteor other communicationsaerial or shedor structure on the propertyormakeanyotheralteration oradditionto the propertyorthefixtures or fittings withouttheprior writtenconsentofthe[SFAsponsor’s localHousingStaffs].
Written consent can be obtained by following the BFC approved Third Party Works (TPW) process, as detailed in SOP 2001 - Estates and Infra Policy and Guidance.
SFA occupants should be aware that using unlicensed tradesmen may present health and safety risks to their families such as exposure to asbestos fibres and fire hazards. If occupants install encroachments without permission, they will be required to retrospectively complete a TPW application requesting Interserve to inspect the encroachment and fund either:
a. Removal of the encroachment and any reparations required to make good the surrounding area if Interserve deem the encroachment unsafe.
b. The life maintenance and annual inspection of the encroachment (including funding any repairs that arise to make safe).
SFA occupants should also note that the Licence to Occupy will be revoked for occupants who repeatedly install encroachments without permission. If a licence is revoked, the occupant and family would be required to vacate the SFA and BFC would not be responsible to provide accommodation, schooling, medical care and access to BFC sites/facilities for the dependants in Cyprus. The entitled person would be allocated Single Living Accommodation.
