As we are performing home inspections, the utility we find shut off most often in vacant homes we inspect is the gas supply. Usually home sellers remember to keep the water and electric on, but for some reason the gas is the forgotten utility.
Inspecting gas lines is a requirement for a home inspection. Sometimes the gas company can make it out to turn it on while we are still at the inspection; but many times it requires another trip to check those gas appliances.
So remember, if you are selling your home – Keep the Gas On:)
