First time renter here, still not sure if I have been accepted or not and the move-in date has been set a week from now. I just wanted to know whether I should go ahead and call up to create accounts for gas, electrical, and phone at this moment or after the lease is actually been signed? If the latter, wouldn't that leave me with no gas, electrical... when I move in (obviously)? How does it actually work?
P.S. I know, I forgot to ask but I am going to check the apartment 3 days prior to the move-in and signing the lease.
