Has anyone ever seen this? One of the neighbors across the street from me has other people living in their house. I understand I should mind my own business but they live in a 2 bedroom and have about 4 other people living in their house. There are about 4 adults and 2 kids living in the house.
Has anyone done anything about this if they have encountered it?

Why is it any of your concern? 

Liberal Scumbag --- 2 years ago -

Well, it could be of concern if the unauthorized people have criminal records, or are registered sex offenders. It can also a safety hazard...over-occupied houses tend to have too many people and belongings crammed in a small space, and too many appliances plugged into outlets. (I know, I'm generalizing...but there are reasons why X amount of people get assigned X amount of rooms, and overcrowding / fire hazards are some of those reasons).

Most people take a MYOB stance on this, but I don't. If you're not authorized to live in base housing, you shouldn't be here. I would only call if I saw something really noticeable, though, like too many cars on the street or noise...so you don't sound like you're complaining for no GOOD reason. Then you can mention "oh, by the way, there are 4 adults living there for the past X months."

Are they military or non? If not I'd like to see how they get sponsorship papers renewed time after time for them to be allowed to drive on and off base...if they're military I'd like to see them get fried. There's no excuse for military freeloading like that. Pay for you housing like the rest us. 

YouReallyThinkSo --- 2 years ago -

How do you know they are not authorized? Just because they have that many people in a 2 bedroom doesnt mean they are not authorized. Our neighbor has 6 people in a 3 bedroom and they are authorized. Unless you see them do something illegal, they are parting past curfew and keeping you and your children up mind your own. 

GntleH2O --- 2 years ago -

Just a thought, it is pcs season. Maybe they are just waiting for housing or until their leave date. Yes, those individuals could use TLA, but a savings is a savings. Then again, getting to know your neighbors is an awesome thing. ijs 

asal --- 2 years ago -

They may be authorized and as far as using more water electricity etc if u go over your limit they will bill you for the extra. Why does everyone feel the need to get into everyone else's business 

Clinical Depression --- 2 years ago -

Getting into someone's business takes precedence over someone potentially breaking the rules? the fact of the matter is that they're skipping out on rent. The general populace of people authorized to live in base housing would be someone who was adopted as a dependent. Highly unlikely with two adults/kid. 

ooorah69P --- 2 years ago -

It's fairly common in military housing. People will let non-military friends or relatives shack up.

I imagine even more so now with the economy the way it is.

When i lived in Gateway across fm MCRD i had a 4 bedrm. My sister and nephew lived in the extra room for a year after her ex left her, till she got back on her feet. 

grantsmommy --- 2 years ago -

yea, i have my suspicions about my neighbors but they have not been as loud as before and the kid and women are gone now so I wonder... 

USMCmomof3 --- 2 years ago -

There are somethings you should myob about...potential free loading relatives and friends of neighbors is not one of them. Base housing has rules. If you can't follow the rules then you should not have housing access. We had a similar situation in this neighborhood and the people ended up being dangerous. I'd call housing and just make them aware. If it is a legit situation then fine- but if n 

USMCmomof3 --- 2 years ago -

Not than they should be reported. (sorry my phone sent the message before I was done.) 

a4006689uu --- 2 years ago -

This happens ALL THE TIME on base. Many have friends or family stay with them for extended periods of time. Even if you called housing and ratted them out I think it takes forever for action to be taken. I mean how would housing know for sure you know? 

CivMP --- 2 years ago -

"House guests" are supposed to be registered with Lincoln or Hunt, depending on the housing area. An anonymous phone call to your local housing office will clear it up...

If PMO responds to an address and it is found that there are "unregistered house guests", then the sponsor can be charged. 

nictx710 --- 2 years ago -

our neighbors do the same thing, atleast 4 or 5 adults living in a 2 beroom house with no kids ( one is preggo), all of them in the military and have been there for atleast 4 or 5 months. so obviously they are making bank. i believe the lease states the allowed time for registered guests in your house is 2 weeks, obviously people bend that rule with family/friends visiting which is understandable but when its a bit eccesive like this it can become a problem (ie our constant fight for our own parking spot in front of our own garage, noise, constant random people in and out blasting music from their cars at all times of the night waking up our son.) in my opinion, if u wanna live with a bunch of buddies and such then use ur bah and move out in town, not into "family" base housing, which a lot of which has waiting list for real families trying to get a place to live, not a bunch of people trying to bank extra cash. 

Momma2Fur --- 2 years ago -

My take is, unless anyone is in imminent danger (not "what if" scenarios of danger) then mind your own business. If you can say you've never broken a rule in your life, feel free to call on them. But I doubt that's true of any living, breathing soul. Let's work on our own dirty backyards instead of focusing on what others do wrong, especially when it isn't affecting you in the least. JMO. 

HereAgain --- 2 years ago -

Yep, what Momma2fur said! 

YouReallyThinkSo --- 2 years ago -

If you register them with base housing they can stay for 30 days. Once those 30 days are up you just have to reregister them. 

Clinical Depression --- 2 years ago -

I think you mean BASE access you can get renewed after 30 days. I doubt you can go to housing and renew a guest staying in your house since there is a two week "limit". Sponsoring them for base access is different than housing. 

YouReallyThinkSo --- 2 years ago -

No, I meant base housing. Our neighbor has a family member that stays with them, a sibling but they dont have custody so they cant add them as a dependent so they just renew them with housing every 30 days. Housing doesnt give them a hard time and said that they can stay as long as needed just renew them every 30 days. 

YouReallyThinkSo --- 2 years ago -

And since we went to the housing office together once when the sibling was renewed I know its true. 

CharlieWhiskey2 --- 2 years ago -

People may live with people on base if they can prove they are financially responsible for them.
If I have a brother who has no job and can't afford anything on his own, I can take financial responsibility for him and he can live on base. In fact, (I'm not too sure if they have to be blood related to the sponsor or not) but I know if the Marine's mother is sick and cannot work or cannot provide for herself, the Marine can take her in as a dependent and even get dependent health care and dental. 

nicole --- 2 years ago -

If they're being a pain say something. If not that whatever. When my husband was deployed I always had friends staying with me. I hated being in the house alone. Also they might be old friends that just pcsed and are waiting to get their own house or are pcsing and their lease was up. If it's more that a few months and they're a problem I'd be concerned. 

BooksRbetter --- 2 years ago -

I know in Serra mesa you only have to register a guest of they will be there more then 2 weeks
Also I had a friend stay with me a few weeks while she waited for hubby to get home from deployment and put in housing. Could be a situation like that. 

CivMP --- 2 years ago -

PMO usually gets involved when there is a loud noise complaint.. we show up and there are numerous "friends" there... some of the young folks think that they can have half the barracks over all the time... it's real bad when the MRS departs the scene for whatever reason.. MR then has a 6 month party waiting for the divorce to become final.

then there is the spouse of a deployed Marine/Sailor... who has "a friend" staying with her/him of the opposite sex... nothing going on there i imagine. 

blah blah blah --- 2 years ago -

We have neighbors who have a whole family livng with them. Its the family that lives there and then a man, wife, and 2 kids. The husband is deploying so they moved in together so the other family could save their BAH why hes gone. Mulitple neighbors have called housing and now they dont come out their house but the ppl are still there. 

Alisa --- 2 years ago -

We have 4 adults & 3 kids living in our home, we also know a family that has 3 adults, & 6 kids. Both with our family as well as our friends the extra adults are family who have become dependants.


While we were waiting for manpower to authorize my parents as dependents we were given the okay from housing to have them stay under a long term visitor pass. Once they were officially dependents we took them done and had them sign the lease.

Point I am trying to make is you don't always know what's going on in someone else's home and speculating about it usually only causes problems. If you question if it is right or wrong go up and meet the family and see what the deal is. If they are doing something wrong tell them it is breaking the rules. Then if nothing is done about it go tattle on them to housing.

I can't believe that the saying "do onto other as you would have them do onto you" isn't used anymore. 

Clinical Depression --- 2 years ago -

If you're not violating the rules you can't be "done unto". 

a3515405uu --- 2 years ago -

We live in a 3 bedroom house and have 5 people living in our home. We have myself, my husband, my daughter, my son and my husbands dad. You are allowed to have someone stay with you for 30 DAYS!!! then after that if they need to stay longer you can go back to housing and GET APPROVAL!!! I have done it personally!! We are currently waiting on paperwork back from headquarters to make my husbands dad a dependent. I say that if there is no reason for serious concern then mind your own bees wax. Everyones else's business is not yours. If there was something happening that was a real concern then i would address it. If you are wondering so dang much then why don't you get the GUTS to GO ASK them!!!
