I’ve sold my home and would like to terminate water service in my name, what do I need to do?
Once you have closed on the sale, you can send a copy of the closing statement to the Utilities Customer Care Office via fax to (941) 429-7121, email to NPUtilities@cityofnorthport.com, or hand-deliver it to the office located on the first floor of City Hall at 4970 City Hall Blvd. Once we receive proof that you are no longer the legal owner of the property, staff will obtain a final read on your meter, terminate your account, and generate your final bill.

I am a new tenant and would like to establish a Utilities account in my name, what do I need to do
It is North Port Utilities ordinance that all residential accounts are ultimately the responsibility of the property owner, and all accounts remain in the property owner’s name. However, property owners can request free duplicate e-billing or a duplicate copy of the bill be sent to a third party at a cost of $3.50 per month for the paper version. Please note: Duplicate bills will not list a tenant’s name, they will be sent addressed to ‘Current Resident’.
