Greater Fayetteville Apartment Association hosts educational seminar: “Military Orders Confusion & Clarification”

By Staff Report, posted 6 months ago

The Greater Fayetteville Apartment Association is hosting an educational seminar   “Military Orders Confusion & Clarification” designed to keep those who are leasing in the Fayetteville Market up to date on the recent changes to Military Orders and its effect on the rental market in Fayetteville. 

According to the event post listed on the GFAA website:

“This class is designed for those unfamiliar with military housing regulations and will also address more specific questions and scenarios.

While the rental process is the same, there are different legal aspects regarding Military Orders that can impact the lease and other aspects of renting. This class will cover all aspects of providing housing to our military community.”

This class will help participants understand and verify Military Orders and participants can expect to: 

  • Learn the difference between verified and forged orders.
  • Identify military order "red flags."
  • Learn what seals are acceptable and what to look for with a digital signature. 
  • Learn Federal and State Laws addressing military housing.
  • And much more.

The class will be instructed by a Fort Liberty DHR Orders representative and lawyers from Loebsack and Brownlee.
