At Least 1 month BEFORE you are scheduled to receive the keys (occupancy), you should setup and start all utilities for your rental unit. For Student Rentals All Utilities are the responsibility of the tenants and must be put in their name. Electric is Required to be active at all times during the lease term even if you are not occupying yet. Additionally, even if you don’t plan to move in for a while, you can SAVE money by avoiding expensive “turn on and pilot lighting fees” that are charged if utilities get turned off between you and the old tenants.
