Re: Buying a new home but not going to move in right away
If it were mine, I would have the utilities transferred into my name as of closing. Call the utilities ahead of time and have it scheduled for that date. It is cheaper to have them transferred than to have them turned back on. Additionally, the gas company doesn't have to relight pilots so you don't have to be there. Then, if the house has any photocell operated outside lights, leave one on so the house doesn't look so unoccupied.
