Set Up New Utilities

Before closing you need to call all utilities that apply to your new home. In Virginia, the day of closing "belongs" to the buyer, which means that utilities for the day of settlement are paid for by the buyer. Here's a list of common utilities you might need to contact before settlement to set up a new account:

  • Electric
  • Gas/Oil
  • Water
  • Telephone
  • Cable/Satelite
  • Security Systems
