Hi all — I noodled around in the archives looking for information on communities that have active military households. We are in the process of reviewing our bylaws here at Takoma Village. The way our current bylaws are written, Takoma Village is owner occupied housing. We do have provisions for people who have to be away for up to 3 years and need to rent their home while they are away. We also restrict how many units can be rented at one time to make sure the financial institutions don’t assume we’re some rental complex rather than a bona fide With military households, they may deploy multiple times in a short time period. Not a military person myself, I don’t know if a deployment or a requirement to serve out of the DC area could be longer than 36 months. We had a military household want to buy here at TVC but the credit union denied their loan for a unit here since we had this 3 yr restriction on renting. We want to look at this. What restrictions on renting do you have in your community, if any. Do you have one or more military households in your community? What needs do they have that is different from your standard agreements rules and regs about renting? How did or do you accommodate military households in re: renting? We’ve actually had and have military households at TVC. When they have been gone for an extended period of time they did not rent their units. We are engaging this question as part of our bylaws review/revision, etc. and we’d like to have the option of accommodating military households. Any info gratefully appreciated.

That comes from poor judgment. NOTE: I’m switching back to using zabaldo [at] earthlink.net. Many apologies!
