Housing Services Office – The HSO prepares temporary lodging allowance paperwork as well as provides an in-depth briefing on renting. HSO is your contact for any problems you may encounter such as discrimination complaints, tenant/landlord disputes, or any questions or problems about off-post housing. The HSO will provide you a list of rentals with corresponding locator maps and give you information regarding the communities in which the rentals are located. HSO also provides transportation to view prospective rentals.
The first month's rent and an additional deposit equal to one month's rent are generally required. You should expect that utilities will not be included in your monthly rent. Utility deposits are typically required, but deposit waivers are usually granted to military personnel. In general, housing in Hawaii is smaller and designed differently than most continental U.S. locations. Although Hawaii is a full weight allowance area for the shipment of household goods, it is a good idea to contact the housing office in Hawaii before making a permanent change of station move for a pre-move assessment on what to ship and what to put into storage.
The HSO will provide in-depth briefings for those new to the island. Rental communities are discussed and transportation can be provided to view prospective rentals in any area of the island. HSO counselors will schedule appointments and drive the customer to the appointment.
