Step 15: Utilities

This is an important step that can be overlooked. Call approximately 7-10 days prior to closing to hook up your utilities with the start date the day of your closing.  Make sure to get the water/gas and electric changed into your name.  You’ll also want to call your TV and internet provider to set up an appointment with them to come out and install service.  

If you are purchasing in a condo building, check with the HOA President or Property Manager about cable and internet. Find out if there is a certain provider you have to use. In certain situations, the HOA fees may even cover gas, water or electric.
