Moving to a new rental apartment, buying a home or renting a commercial space brings with it doubts when it comes to hiring electricity. We show you how in a few simple steps you can change the name of the light and start a new life in your home!

Entering to live in a new flat, apartment or house is a process that involves a considerable workload, paperwork and administrative procedures for any single, couple or family. Depending on the state of the property (brand new home, rental home …), you may find yourself in two situations regarding home services:

  • that the services (electricity, water and gas) are registered;
  • that home services are terminated.

Both in one situation and in the other, you must appear as the holder of the electricity supply contract, we show you how simple it is.

Hire light

There is talk of contracting electricity or electricity to what is commonly known as “changing the name of the light.” When you enter to live in a rental apartment, it is common that the electricity is still in the name of the last tenant, in the name of the owner of the house or the real estate agency. It is a common practice that is done both to avoid the expenses involved in a new registration, as well as for the convenience of having electricity supply in the home during the period that it remains empty, to be able to show it to potential tenants.
