The resident is responsible for placing all utilities in their name and pay all utility bills due for services to the premises for which resident is responsible (unless otherwise agreed to in the lease). At the termination of the lease the resident is responsible for having all utilities services disconnected and must submit proof of the Final Bill being paid to Management. If you are a JMU student, we recommend contacting JMU’s Utility Deposit Assistance Program PRIOR to contacting utility companies. (Most utility providers will only put an account in one person’s name. Please work this out with your roommates.)
How do I turn on utilities?
