To activate the accounts with the utility companies requires specific documentation and requirements which is outlined below. At times, this process can take time to complete and there sometimes can be a 5 - 7 day waiting period from the time the documentation is provided and applications submitted until the actual utilities are actually turned on.
We are able to assist in providing service in getting this completed on behalf of our owners with a signed letter of authorization from the owner. We will write this letter to be signed by the owner and faxed / scanned back to us for submission with the application.
The charge to perform this service is US $300
