An Owner’s responsibility is to keep the utilities on during the time the property is vacant. Listed on the Other Services tab of this website is a list of phone numbers for various utility companies. You can arrange to have the utilities switched over to your name when a tenant leaves and before a new Tenant moves in. If you would like you can have the bill sent to us and we will pay for it out of your reserve. You then have a good record (for tax purposes) of your expenses. Additionally this web site has some links to other sites that may be of interest to you. For example, the county assessors, Dept. of Real Estate, Secretary of State for the Tenant & Landlord Act. And more.
