Walkaway Scheme

We want to ensure your house move experience is as simple and stress free as possible. The Walkaway Scheme is a voluntary service which allows you to purchase options which will allow you to simply walkaway from the property safe in the knowledge that Move-In standard will be covered for the products selected.

By producing the Walkaway certificate at move-out you will avoid some of the charges (dependent on the options you choose) for your Service family accommodation, however, we still need you to leave it hygienically clean.

What is the Walkaway Scheme?

The Walkaway Scheme allows you to select options which you will not need to bring to the required Move out standard. As long as you leave your property hygienically clean, you’ll walk away on move-out day avoiding charges covered by the Walkaway Scheme.

What are the benefits of the Walkaway Scheme?

  • Pay one clear, transparent fee, instead of having to wait to see if you’ve incurred any charges available through Walkaway at move-out
  • The Walkaway option is cheaper than incurring barrack charges for the options you have selected
  • Leave your Service family accommodation with no worries
  • You don’t have to spend the time getting everything to move-out standard

What do you mean by ‘hygienically clean’?

Although the Walkaway Scheme gives you reassurance that you will avoid charges for your Service family accommodation, we’ll still need you to leave it hygienically clean.

This means:

  • All surfaces, including floors, are clear of rubbish and residue
  • No rubbish is left in the house, garden or in the bins
  • All food and drink has been removed
  • All toilets have been flushed
  • All baths, showers and sinks are clear of residue

Please note: Your Accommodation Officer will advise you about your responsibilities in the Walkaway Scheme in more detail. If you don’t do what you have been asked to and, for example, leave food waste in your kitchen or rubbish in your wheelie bin, you will incur a charge over and above the Walk away scheme payment.

How do I opt in to the Walkaway Scheme?

Your Accommodation Officer will let you know if you are eligible for the Walkaway Scheme at your pre-move out appointment.

Once you have opted in, you will receive details via email confirming how you can pay. At your move out appointment, you will need to present the certificate to your Accommodation Officer.
