It is important to note that the utility charges are the responsibility of the property owner no matter who is living there. It is a good idea to make sure any past due utility charges are addressed by your title company or real estate agent.
When buying or selling a home in New Brighton, notify us of the change by using the moving form or calling the Finance Department at 651-638-2101. A final meter reading will be scheduled on or near the closing date. Once the final read is taken, a final bill will be processed for the former owner. After this bill has been prepared, the new owner's information will be added to the account. If it is a new home, the Utility Billing staff will make sure the account is created and the billing started.
