You will want to arrange in advance for the utilities to be turned on in your new Tucson home. At least a week in advance of your scheduled closing date, call the appropriate services to request that the service be transferred to you and the utilities be turned on as of your closing date. We can ask the sellers which services they used, so that in the event there is a choice of providers you can ask how satisfied they were with their providers.
