Buying a Home #21: Hook up your Utilities

Step 21 to Buying a Home: Hook up your Utilities

This is one of those annoying tasks that no one thinks about doing ahead of time, but is crucial, especially if you want the TV and internet working the day you move in. Call now to hook up your utilities! Make sure to get the gas and electric changed into your name.

Once again, we have a lot of different jurisdictions in our area. I’ll work with you to get the right numbers to call. You’ll also want to call your TV and internet provider, as most likely you’ll need to set up an appointment with them to come out and install service and it can sometimes take a few days to get the appointment. If you’re buying in a condo building, check with the HOA President or Property Management company to see if either cable or internet are included in your HOA fee. If not, find out if there is a certain provider you have to use or if you can use whomever you’d like.

If you’re buying a single family house you’ll also need to arrange for the water and trash bills to be changed into your name. Have all the utilities start on the day of closing.
