Turn On Home Utilities Prior to the Closing Date

About a week before closing, you will get an email from your buyers agent with instructions on how to switch the utilities for the house into your name so that everything is on in the house and in your name on the day of closing for your move.  This is a very simple process and will give you a website and telephone number for the various utility companies serving your new home (gas, electric, water/sewer, telephone, cable etc).  We find that its best to start getting these set up about a week or so before you close and the companies will simply start billing you as of the day of closing.
