We always check with the utility companies to make sure all payments are up to date and the supply is connected without any problems. This includes water, electric and gas.
Calculations are made for any possible debt for unpaid bills left by the vendor and retained so everything can be paid off and clean for the new owners.
We also take care of informing the companies of the new ownership of the property, therefore changing the contracts into the new owner’s name and setting up a direct debit for the payments.
Water is usually charged every three months. Electric is usually charged every two months, sometimes monthly.
We also inform the community administrators of the new ownership so they can also update their system and arrange the new direct debit for community payments.
If we were to represent you for the sale of you property, after completion we will contact each company separately to make sure the direct debits are cancelled so your account will no longer be charged.
We can also assist you paying an existing debt and arranging to reconnect the supply. It is always recommended to keep a minimum amount of funds in your Spanish bank so you can avoid debt to build up that can lead to disconnected supplies.
