Tenant Utility Transfer

When and How to Transfer Utilities

Property Management, Utility Transfer

Per the terms of our lease agreement, it is a tenant's responsibility to transfer and pay for all utilities available to the property (Gas & Electric, Water, Trash, TV, Telephone, etc.), unless otherwise agreed in writing by North County Property Group.

Here is a list of common utility providers for your convenience. Make sure you have all utilities transferred into your name prior to your move-in date. Please locate your service providers and give them a call to start, remove or transfer utility service at your new (rental) home.

This is a requirement of your lease and keys will not be provided until proof of utility transfer has been confirmed.
