Military Relocation Package

There are three main components to your relocation package. The Core components are covered by your Department of National Defence. This includes the most crucial elements of relocating to another area. The cost to sell your existing home, breaking your rental lease, mortgage penalty fees, Realtor commission and the cost of your house hunting trip (HHT) are some of the most important benefits.

The second element of the relocation package is the Custom component. This can include benefits such as marketing incentives to help sell your existing property, cost of property inspection and bridge financing if necessary. It can also include a wide array of benefits ranging from covering a car rental during your house hunting trip to accommodations and shipping of personal items.

The final Personalized element is not considered crucial but it can include a moving grant and posting allowance.

Brookfield manages the CF relocation directive. If you have a specific question simply call or email us and we will gladly contact Brookfield on your behalf to get you the precise information.
