Utilities

Although many landlords include water in the rental price of an apartment, you will probably need to set up electricity and/or gas, cable, and telephone/internet accounts depending on your needs. Ask your landlord or property manager about utilities when you apply for an apartment, they should be able to give you names and phone numbers of utility companies so that you can set up your accounts in advance.
