Step 18: Hook Up Your Utilities


This is one of those crucial tasks that often gets overlooked until the last minute. Ensure a smooth transition into your new home by handling your utility setup ahead of time.

Call now to get your utilities up and running! Remember to transfer gas, electricity, water, and sewer services into your name.

Additionally, contact your TV and internet provider promptly to schedule an installation appointment, as it may take weeks to secure a convenient time slot.

For condo purchases, consult the HOA President or Property Management Company to confirm cable and internet coverage in your HOA fee. If not included, inquire about authorized service providers.

For single-family homes, don't forget to change the billing information for trash services to your name. Coordinate all utility activations to start on your closing day.
