What do I do if, selling or moving to or from property in RWD #14 service area
If you are selling or moving, you need to call the office to make arrangements to have your service disconnected and taken out of your name. Contact information such as forwarding address and contact phone numbers will be required, as well as the date you want service discontinued in your name. After the meter is read, your final bill will be figured and paid from your deposit. If your deposit is insufficient to cover the final amount, a bill will be sent to you. If your deposit is larger than the final bill, any balance remaining after the final bill is paid will be refunded to your forwarding address.
If you are buying, after you close, you need to come by the office and bring a copy of your deed. (A copy of the signed deed may be obtained at closing from your closing agent. For our purposes it does not need to be recorded but must be a signed copy.) You will fill out a Transfer of Membership, pay your deposit and service charge. We will also need a copy of your photo ID. This needs to be done as soon as possible after closing to avoid a disruption in water service.
