At the termination of the lease the resident is responsible for having all utilities services disconnected. Please see the Utilities section of our website for utility contact information. The type of service you pay for depends on the type of property you select. Some may just require you to pay for electricity and others, typically single family homes, will require you pay all the utilities (gas, electric, water, sewer and garbage, etc.)
