Transfer of Service for Title Companies

To transfer service on a City of Lakewood water, sewer, or stormwater utility account, the title company should fill out and email the below form, 48 hours prior to the closing date. A final bill will be ordered for the property which will reflect the amount to collect and prorate between the buyer and seller at the time of closing.


**Please note we do not provide statuses.**

The City of Lakewood water, sewer, and stormwater utilities are subject to lien against the properties, if utilities remain unpaid. Liens are filed once a year with the Jefferson County Assessor's Office and are attached to the property taxes as a special assessment. Balances are tied to the properties. If a transfer of title is completed, utilities are typically collected after receiving final bills by the title companies, who then collect at the time of closing.
