As seller, you should attend to the following matters, where applicable, before the settlement date:
- Arrange for the real estate agent to give the keys to the property to the buyer on the date of possession or, if you occupy the premises as your principal place of residence, at noon on the day following settlement.
- Cancel your insurance on the property no sooner than the day after the buyer takes possession or settlement (whichever occurs first).
- Cancel the electricity and gas services. Any amount for electricity or gas consumed by you up to the date of possession or settlement is your responsibility and will not be apportioned at settlement.
- Cancel your telephone, internet, pay television and any other telecommunications services or transfer them to your new residence.
