Per the terms of your lease agreement, it is a tenant's responsibility to transfer and pay for all utilities available to the property (Gas & Electric, Propane, Water, Trash, TV, Telephone, etc.).

For your convenience, we have provided a list of common utility providers. Make sure you have all utilities transferred into your name prior to your move-in date, as keys will not be provided until proof of utility transfer has been confirmed.
