All newcomer personnel assigned to Dover AFB must stop by the Housing Management Office, located at 1069 High Street, in the housing area, before entering into a lease or purchase agreement for a home. The Housing Management office will assist you in all your housing referral needs, whether you elect to purchase, rent in the area or move into privatized housing. If you elect privatized housing you must have a referral form signed by one of our housing counselors before you can sign a lease with Dover AFB Properties LLC.
Eagle Heights at Dover (aka - Dover AFB Properties, LLC) is the privatized Military Family Housing Community at Dover AFB and is managed by Hunt Military Communities. New two, three, four and five bedroom homes are available for our Members stationed at Dover AFB. Also available are handicap adaptable homes. Rent is based on the local BAH Rate less utilities. The Utility Allowance is based on the floor plan type that the Member should move into. Also included in the Rent is Renters Insurance. The policy is for up to $20,000 with a $100.00 deductible. Members are encouraged to purchase/maintain additional Renters Insurance to cover anything that would not be covered under the provided insurance through Dover AFB Properties, LLC.
If a Member should elect to reside in Privatized Housing at Dover AFB they would be required to sign a one (1) year Lease Agreement and to pay their rent through an allotment, which is set up at the time of the Move In Process by a representative of Dover AFB Properties, LLC. Rent is paid in arrears. If a Member should move in after the 1st of the month they will need to pay the Pro-Rate for that current month on the day of Move In.
Note: Please be aware that Rent Allotments may not start for up to three (3) months after moving in to privatized housing. If this should occur, the AD Member will be responsible for paying Dover AFB Properties, LLC the rent until it starts. We suggest that you review your LES during this time of transition to ensure your BAH rates have changed and an allotment has started. For More Information, please contact the Hunt Military Communities Privatized Housing Team in Eagle Heights at (302) 678-3603.
