As your property managers, we don’t call utility companies on an owner’s or resident’s behalf. However, we do take the necessary steps to make sure utilities are paid and the correct person is paying for them. Most importantly, here is what we are doing to protect our residents and owners.
  1. We have all owners set up their properties as Revert to Owner. To clarify, this means when a resident has moved out they will no longer be paying the bills and the owner automatically will.  Not having a Revert to Owner in place can cause issues with completing the make-ready. Also, it’s especially important in the winter months to have the utilities on because cold winters can result in pipes bursting. Remember, per the Management Agreement, we do not put utilities in Voepel’s name.
  2. To ease the transition, Voepel Property Management will pay the utility bills on the owner’s behalf. Just list our address to have the bills sent to us (406 W 75th St Suite A, Kansas City, MO 64114).
  3.  Before a resident moves into a property, our leasing team requires proof that they have switched the utilities to their name.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this information please contact our office for clarification.
