Selling a Home

  • Any escrow amount more the final water amount due will be refunded to the seller or designated person on the seller’s behalf.

  • Title Companies work with Water Billing directly for final amounts due.

  • Title Companies work with Water Billing  to transfer water accounts from the seller to the buyer after a closing.

  • It is up to the seller to pay any final amount due if the Title Company does not submit required information to the Water Department. Be sure to communicate with your Title Company.

Buying a Home

  • Through a traditional closing with a Title Company present, the buyer will complete a form including name, mailing address and phone number at the closing. 

  • The Title Company submits that information after closing to Water Billing.

  • The water account is transferred to the buyers name the next business day.

  • If not purchased at closing (e.g., at an auction) all past due amounts are due at time of opening your new water account. And the deed is required.
