Disposal of surplus MOD property team

The Ministry of Defence continually examines ways of improving military capability and value for money for the taxpayer. As part of this approach the Department keeps the size and location of its bases under constant review and is committed to ensuring that the Defence Estate (DE) is no larger than necessary to meet operational needs.

Any land or property declared surplus to MOD requirements is handed over to the Defence Estates’ Land Management Services (DE LMS) for disposal in accordance with HM Treasury Guidance (Managing Public Money) – the money raised being an important part of the Defence budget to be reinvested in key priorities.

Having first considered the planning situation, DE LMS disposal staff will sell the property as swift as the market will allow to get the best price reasonably obtainable (i.e. market value), normally through open competition - unless it is required by other Government Departments or public bodies or there are former owner (Crichel Down) considerations.

Please use the links on the right to read our Terms and Conditions of use, then browse the related pages to search for property currently available, together with information on the Crichel Down rules and some frequently asked questions.
