Our latest data show that 47,383 service family accommodation (SFA) properties in the United Kingdom have been assessed for their standard for condition (SfC), with over 95 per cent of properties now at the top two (of four) condition standards. We regard both standard 1 and standard 2 properties as of a good standard.
At present, around 1,500 assessed properties are below standard 1 or 2 for condition. Properties at the lowest standard, standard 4, are no longer allocated and properties at standard 3 are only allocated when no other option is available. The numbers of properties at each SfC changes constantly as individual homes age, or are disposed of. However, this year's upgrade programme will bring at least a further 800 SFA properties up to the highest SfC.
