In Ontario, how do I transfer utilities to a tenant?
To begin, you must contact your current utility provider to cancel service at your previous address. Disconnecting service from any utility requires at least five days’ notice, so don’t wait until the last minute. It’s best to give yourself a week or two’s notice. You should be able to reach out to your utility by email or phone.
Your account number, which can be found on your energy and natural gas bills, is required. You’ll also need to call an electricity or natural gas retailer if you have a contract with them. Give your retail provider at least two weeks’ notice if possible. If they are unable to serve you at your new address, they will transfer your service or cancel your contract.
What is the best way to move power from one residence to another?
When it comes to water and sewer services, your new city or town will most likely be in charge. Contact your city’s public utilities office a few weeks ahead of time to schedule the service to begin on closing day (or moving day, if you’re renting). If you’re moving to a new city with a new water/sewer service, get an approximate estimate from your real estate agent and the previous owners. Water costs vary by city and region, so don’t assume that water and sewage will cost the same as they did in your previous home for budgeting purposes.
How can I make a name change on my SCE bill?
It’s an easy process if you’ve married, divorced, or legally changed your name, or if you just want to correct a typo. Simply contact the utility company and inform them of the situation. Some businesses will make the change right away, while others may send you a “change of account holder information” form to fill out. Fill out this form and provide a copy of your marriage certificate, divorce decree, or court order permitting the name change with it. You can usually edit your account holder information online if you handle your bills online. Log in to your account, alter your name, and explain why you want to change your name. After that, just click “change information” and you’re done.
When you move, what happens to your utilities?
When you move, you must notify your gas, electricity, and water providers that you will be leaving your current residence. Following that, you’ll receive a final bill based on the final meter readings (remember to give your suppliers your new address so they can send this out).
Is it possible for me to have two SP Services accounts?

How do I get my new house’s utilities set up?
Each utility must be configured separately. Although certain utility settings allow more wiggle space than others, it’s generally recommended that you start the process three weeks before you move. However, as a general guideline, give your utility providers as much warning as possible, particularly if they need to come out and physically set up the service.
With that in mind, here’s how to get utilities set up so they’re ready to go on move-in day.
Determine who your providers are (three to four weeks before your move)
Utility providers for your new home may differ from those for your previous home. Different provider regulations apply to different cities, neighborhoods, apartment complexes, and landlord/management companies. Similarly, some utility firms only provide service in specific locations.
If you’re relocating to a property you’ve purchased, look up utility providers on your city’s and/or county’s websites. Check your lease or ask your landlord if you’re renting. Most utilities, such as electricity, natural gas, water and wastewater, and trash pickup, will be provided by a single provider, but internet and cable will be provided by many providers.
Contact utility companies (two weeks before your move)
You can contact your providers now that you know who they will be. If you already have utilities set up in your current house, you’ll need to either transfer them or cancel them and start over. You’ll only need to set up new ones if you’re beginning from scratch.
- If you need to transfer utilities: If the provider for a certain utility does not change between your current home and your new home, you will need to do so. If this is the case, you’ll need to contact the provider and request that the service be moved to a different location. You’ll need to supply your new address, as well as the precise day on which service should be turned off in one home and on in another.
- If you need to cancel utilities: This is true if you need to switch service providers. Contact the provider of the utility you want to cancel and inform them that you want to terminate the service. They’ll need the address where you’ll be terminating service, as well as the precise date on which your account should be terminated.
- Creating a new service: To create a new service, go to your new provider’s website. If there isn’t any information on how to set up utilities, phone them directly. You’ll need to provide them with the address where you’d like to set up utilities as well as the date on which you’d like service to begin.
At this time, most utility companies will also require payment information, such as a credit card or a bank account and routing number. A credit check and/or a security deposit may be required in some cases. Before you begin the application process, find out exactly what is expected of you so that you are prepared.
If you’re renting, keep in mind that your landlord may need confirmation that you’ve hooked up utilities. Find out how long ahead of time you’ll need to supply this information so you can contact your providers sooner if necessary.
Check that utilities have been successfully turned off/on (moving day)
When transferring, canceling, or setting up utilities, there’s always the chance of making a mistake. As a result, it’s a good idea to double-check that everything went as planned, especially since you don’t want to be surprised with a charge for services you believed were turned off.
It’s simple enough to double-check that your new home’s utilities have been turned on. Check that you can turn on a light, cook something, flush the toilet, and connect to the internet. You’ll have to wait until collection day to confirm garbage pickup, but you should know whether everything is in order by the end of the week. If any utilities that should be switched on aren’t, contact the provider straight immediately. If the problem is due to a mistake on their part, they can generally get service to you quickly and set up a utility for you.
Double-check your account details for canceled utilities to ensure that the shut-off occurred on the specified date. If you don’t see that information on the company’s website, phone them to double-check (and be sure to get the name of the person you speak tojust in case).
