Why can’t we just activate the utilities ourselves and skip this process? This process is a HUD policy. You are required to receive approval from your Field Service Manager (FSM) prior to activating any utilities.

Can we leave utilities activated until closing? No, you cannot. You need to have utilities deactivated within 72hrs. This is a HUD policy.

We need to schedule our inspection and appraisal at the same time. How do we go about this? You need to speak to your lender and request an estimated date in which your appraiser will be at the property. If they cannot go out during your inspection period, then you will need to deactivate utilities. Once you receive word that your appraiser may be going to the property, you will have to request approval once again and await our response.

Do you require original signatures? No, your signature(s) above constitute your lawful signature.

How long does it generally take to receive approval for activation? It usually takes 2-3 business days to receive approval.

How do we know if the property is winterized? Your agent should have provided you the PCR (Property Condition Report) which was available when placing a bid. This report does state whether or not the property is winterized. Furthermore, your agent may visit the property to verify if the property is currently winterized as well.

Does the FSM activate utilities or does the buyer/agent activate utilities? It is the buyer’s responsibility to activate utilities upon receiving our signed approval.
