You can request a Property Transfer Meter Reading (also known as a Title Read or Final Read) prior to the sale of your property. The current property owner should request the title read be done at least 30 days in advance of the closing.
There is a $25 charge for this reading. An inspection will be scheduled if needed.
This does not shut off water and sewer service to the property.
When you sell or transfer a property, remember to take care of the following items for your water bill/account:
- Request a title water meter reading from DEP prior to closing
- Stop automated bill payments option on-line if enrolled
- Cancel Service Line Protection Program if enrolled
- Un-enroll from MY DEP on-line account access
DEP does not shut off water or sewer services for property sales.
