"Sailors waiting out the 60-day hold on Permanent Change of Station moves should consult their local Legal Assistance Office before notifying a landlord of intent to terminate their lease or even if they need to negotiate an extension." said Cmdr. John Bauer, Chief of Naval Personnel Legal Office this past Friday in an article released by the Navy.
The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, or SCRA, gives military personnel protections in these types of situations. Still, you need to be careful so you don't mistakenly lose some of those protections during this time.
Cmdr. John Bauer stated that "If you have received, or are expecting to receive, PCS orders and have not yet terminated your current lease, you should consider waiting until the Navy lifts the stop-movement order and reauthorizes PCS moves. Even once the travel ban is lifted, it may take some time to turn your move back on.
However, if you have already requested an early lease termination under the SCRA, seek immediate from your Legal Assistance Office in contacting your landlord to request a voluntary lease extension.
Any agreement to re-let or extend a lease, however, should be written and signed by both you and your landlord with specific language that protects you from losing SCRA protections."
