Free utility-connection service

If you require electricity, gas, phone, water, broadband or Pay TV connection when you move in, we can help. Just fill out the  free utility–connection
section on the application form for either the St Kilda or Elwood office. It is best to request connection for one day prior to moving in, as electricity 
connections can occur at any time on the requested day.

Important Information regarding electricity connection

The main electrical switch at the rental property must be switched ‘OFF’ before the electricity can be connected (sometimes a second switchboard is installed 
Inside the property, and this must also be switched to OFF’) Connections will not occur if the main switch is left in the ‘ON’ position on the day of the connection. 
Although Pride Real Estate can assist with turning the switch ‘OFF’ on some occasions, ultimately it is the obligation of the tenant, not the agent, to ensure this has been done.
