Re: Lease ending, utilites transfer procedure? by Becky (IN) on March 24, 2014 @13:59

Call your local utilities providers and ask them how to best handle this. In my area, the utility companies have a landlord agreement, which is a letter that I sign and return to them, authorizing them to switch service back to me immediately when a trnant leaves. This avoids fees for reconnecting service.

You'll have to check GA landlord/tenant law to be sure you're allowed to deduct unpaid utils from their deposit (see the Landlord Tenant Law link in the pink column at the right of this forum), but yes, that is a reasonable thing to do if the tenants don't pay the final bill. (If that happens, enclose a copy of the bill with the security deposit settlement statement.)
