Utilities Transfer Information

Ok, so you’re just about to close on your home purchase or sale, what do you do for the utilities? Does it just magically get setup for you? Maybe, or maybe not ;^)

Property tax bills should be moved to the new owner, generally done by the city or your lawyer on closing.
