An employee appealed the disallowance of his claim for reimbursement of real estate expenses incurred in connection with his permanent change of official station. An employee can request an extension of the 1-year initial authorization period even when the request is made more than 2 years after the transfer as long as the real estate transaction itself was completed within 2 years of the transfer. The claim was allowed.
