If you are selling your home, the water service does not get shut off. A “Real Property Transfer Form” must be submitted to the City, with the accompanying fee, in order to transfer property from one owner to another. This form is typically provided to the Finance Department by a title company, lawyer, and/or representative who is facilitating the property transfer. After the “Real Property Transfer Form” is submitted to Finance and all outstanding utility amounts are paid in full, the property transfer can move forward. Once the original deed is brought to the Finance Department for recording, the utility account will be transferred to the new owner. Fees are in accordance with the annually adopted City of Annapolis Fee Schedule.
Please call the Finance Office at 410-263-7853 to verify the fee amount.
