For sales or foreclosures, a Transfer of Property Form (below) should be submitted at least one week prior to closing. This will allow the Water Department to schedule a "final read" approximately 3 days prior to closing.
- For Monday closings, reads will be done the Thursday prior. - For Tuesday closings, reads will be done the Friday prior. - For Wednesday and Thursday closings, reads will be done Monday of the same week. - For Friday closings, reads will be done Tuesday of the same week.
Once the final read is done, the DPW will send a Final Bill to the Attorneys listed on the Transfer of Property Form. All amounts due should be paid directly to the Town of Longmeadow and will be credited to the water/sewer account. Effective August 21st, 2017 the Water and Sewer Commission (Select Board) voted to apply a standard fee of $25.00 for all final meter reads with three or more days’ notice. Any requests received with less than three days’ notice will be charged a fee of $75.00. The seller of the property is responsible for this fee unless otherwise agreed upon between parties.
