Step 20: Schedule to Disconnect Your Utilities

This is one of those annoying tasks that no one thinks about doing ahead of time, but is crucial, as you don’t want to forget and end up paying the buyer’s electricity bill for the first month.

Call now to let the utility companies know that you’re moving. Ask to have all utilities taken out of your name on the day of closing.   Have all of the utilities stop on the day of closing.

If you have a security system, schedule it to be shut off the day before closing.

See Utility Info & Useful Phone Numbers for important information of companies servicing the area.

If you’re moving to a new home, transfer the utilities to your new home instead of canceling them.
