Continuous Service Agreement

What is the "Continuous Service Agreement"?

This agreement allows the Landlord/Owner the convenience of having service maintained between tenants. Meaning there will be no interruption of electricity service when your tenant vacates the premises. Simply, a new account will be established in your name, with service effective on the date the tenant vacates and an account set-up fee of $30.00 will be charged.
