HELPFUL TIPS – UTILITY CONTACTS IN REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS

In most real estate transactions, you solicitor will contact your utility companies, such as hydro and water, to notify them of the upcoming change in ownership and arrange for a meter reading. They will also contact the municipality to advise of the change in ownership for the tax account.

However, there are some companies, such as Enbridge for example, that will not accept letters from the solicitors any longer due to their privacy policy and the purchaser or seller will need to contact the utility company directly to arrange for a meter reading and change of account. This is becoming more frequent as time goes on and certain companies may require a new contract to be signed by the new owner (e.g. companies that lease water heaters, furnaces, water softeners, propane tanks, etc). It is advisable to ask your solicitor who they contact and who you will need to contact before closing.
