Before Buying a Home

Delinquent and unpaid utility bills are the responsibility of the property owner. If a property changes ownership, the new property owner becomes responsible for any outstanding utility bill balance. Before purchasing a home in New Hope, the city encourages potential homeowners to make sure that all past due utility accounts are paid in full or that enough money has been set aside in escrow at closing to cover the final bill amount.

To Inquire About a Utility Account Balance

To inquire about a utility account or special assessments on a property you must do so in writing. The request may be faxed or emailed (see contact information above at right). Please include the following:

  • Name, phone number and email address of person requesting information
  • Address of property in New Hope
  • If property is being sold:
    • Closing date
    • Buyer's name
    • Title-closing company name and phone number

You may also fill out the Property History \ Assessment Request form on the website to request property information. The utility billing department will respond to your request within a few business days.
