Who makes sure that telephone, water and electric are turned on...installed?

Well, 'turned on' (if they exist at the property) is relatively simple. Our agents regard the process of telephoning the major utilities suppliers:- EDF, EGF (Electricity & Gas), France Telecom and your regional water company SAUR and  will register you as customers as the finishing touch to an excellent service to make sure that you are switched on. Some instances, usually in the case of renovation projects are different for obvious reasons and will require discussion at a later point.
