It may take some time to catch up to you until the deed is recorded. You might want to check in with your real estate attorney on this? And many people say that having the meter installed if you do not have one is the way to go to make sure you aren't overpaying! Congrats on your new home!
Thanks all for the congrats. I'm glad you told me about the trash because I didn't even know there was a charge for that. I believe I have a meter. There is a a round device on the service line called Badger Meter that is wrapped in brown wire and a serial numbered dog tag. I'm eager to get one because I need to pull permits and they ask for the water bill as proof of ownership. I've also been told I can use the closing documents. Thanks all.
