Buying a home?

Something you need to know…

When property changes ownership, any unpaid water and wastewater/ storm arrears becomes the responsibility of the new owner.

The buyer’s lawyer should contact Horizon Utilities at (905) 522-9200 to provide the relevant property transfer information and to request a final water meter read. It’s important that the final read is an accurate read and not an estimate. Any unbilled consumption resulting from obtaining an actual water meter reading is the sole responsibility of the property owner on title when the actual reading occurs.
