This is one of those annoying tasks that no one thinks about doing ahead of time, but is best to do a week before closing.

Most homes will need the following services canceled:

Gas, Electricity, Water, Sewer, Trash

You’ll also want to call your TV and internet provider to schedule the cancellation of their service as well.

Have all of the utilities set cancel on the day you GIVE possession of the home to the buyers.  

Please confirm with us once you have them all set up, as we will coordinate with the buyers agent that the new owner switches them into their name on the same day to avoid any unnecessary reconnect charges.
