Should there be any separate utility meters on the property being purchased, the appropriate departments must be advised to read the meters on closing so that there will be no interruption of services. The purchaser will only be billed after the closing date with the vendor being billed for the period prior to the closing date. Hydro prefers that purchasers and vendors make direct arrangements for meter readings by contacting Hydro. It is also advisable that purchasers should also contact any applicable utility department to arrange to have utility accounts set up in the purchaser’s name to avoid any misunderstandings.
