Congratulations! So you are days away from closing and moving into your new home and need to change the utilities into your name. This is important to do ahead of time to be sure you are not left in the dark the day you move in. Sellers are not obligated to keep the utilities on for you after closing and will normally request service be terminated on the day of closing and may do it the day before.
It is, therefore, important for you to call ahead in plenty of time to get the utilities in your name. This way the service will not actually be turned off but the name on the account will be changed. If you do not get this accomplished in time it can be days before the service people arrive to turn service back on.
