Utilities - Energy/gas

When you move into a new home, you will need to choose an energy supply company for your residence. It is best to search among the free market companies and make a comparison of the rates and services that best suit your needs.
You will not need to change the energy meter that you have installed. Terminating the contract with the old operator is the responsibility of the new supplier.
The time it may take to connect electricity and/or natural gas at your new address is about 15 days, so you should request the connection as soon as you can.
The documents requested are usually:
– Taxpayer number;
– Delivery point code (included in the invoices);
– Bank identification number (in case of direct debit payment)
– Proof of the new address (e.g. copy of the deed).

Utilities - Water

To sign a water supply contract for your new home, you can do it in person at the municipal water and sanitation services, or via the email address provided by the municipality in your area of residence.
The documents requested are usually:
– Form (each municipality’s own form);
– Citizen Card or Identity Card and Taxpayer Card;
– Title of acquisition;
– Updated Caderneta Predial Urbana (urban land registry)
– Proof of NIB (in case of payment by direct debit)
Some chambers already have an online procedure.
If the property already has a meter installed, it is mandatory to provide the current meter reading.
It makes the process easier if you have an old meter invoice with you.

home insurance

Home insurance

Despite all precautions, adverse situations do occur! The purchase of a house, be it an apartment or a villa, implies the mandatory contracting of an insurance policy that covers the fire risk of the house and, if applicable, of the corresponding common parts (roof, stairs, elevators, garage, etc.).

The insurances associated to Housing Loan operations have the function of safeguarding the protection of the property and the protection of the credit granted, foreseeing its payment to the Bank in particularly adverse situations for the Client / family unit.

We can put you in contact with an insurance broker who will find the package that suits you the best according to your needs
