Homeowner’s Responsibility for Utilities
Our policy for termination of utility accounts is as follows:
Shoemaker Homes establishes the electrical and water meter utilities while the home is under construction. We typically do not have a gas meter set unless requested.
If a gas account is requested prior to closing, the buyer will be responsible for all fees associated with the gas connection and usage. Shoemaker Homes does not assume any financial responsibility for costs related to gas meter, service or usage.
Shoemaker Homes will send a request for termination of services to the electrical and water companies two days prior to the scheduled closing of your home with a cutoff date listed as your closing date…unless your closing date is on a Friday. If this is the case, we request cutoff of services for the following Monday. Please make arrangements to have the utilities transferred into your name to avoid termination of electricity and water.
