Utilities Account when taking over house

Recommended Posts


I have a question regarding the utilities account when I move house. In 2 weeks, I'll be taking over the resale flat I bought. Should I request that the sellers do a utilities account transfer (water, electricity and gas) to me instead of terminating the account, so as to minimize disruption to the utilities services?

Would I have to open a utilities account with SP prior to this? If so, can this be done online?

Thank you.

Note sure if too late. You should be able to take over the account if the previous owners had not terminated it prior to the 2nd appointment. Basically SP services would have the necessary information on this and you can go directly to them in HDB hub to enquire and take over the account. If the previous owners had already terminated the services prior to 2nd appointment, you will also be able to "turn on" the services immediately one you have done the application and paid the deposit to them.
