You are about to move in. Yea!!! But before settlement day, you should go ahead and schedule your utility hook-ups to be turned on to your name for the day you close on your new home. When you get the boxes in the house, couch right where you want, and you want to take a break, you want your Cable TV to be working so you can flip through to your favorite channels, right?
If you are selling your home, Congratulations! You will want to also schedule to your utilities turned off the day of settlement. If you are moving out before you actually close, I would recommend scheduling your shut offs for end of day of settlement, or the next day. Reason being is if your closing time is in the afternoon, they buyer may be doing their final walk through that morning. You want to eliminate any potential problems caused due to no power or water.
