When you buy a property, the connection for water and electricity (WEB) must be transferred to your name. This is only possible after you have been to the notary for the transfer. For this you go to the WEB, the W ater and the Electricity Company B onaire. It is best to make an appointment for water and electricity connection early, preferably 1 to 2 weeks before the transfer:
- By phone: (+599) 715 8244
- WEB office: Kaya Gresia w/n
When changing WEB to your name, you pay a deposit to the WEB. These costs are:
1. Connection Fee: $40
2. Deposit Water: $100
3. Deposit Electricity
– normal connection capacity (3×35 kVA): $150
– For example, if you have a connection capacity of 3×80 kVA, the deposit is: $370
4. Deposit per air conditioner: $75
After selling a home, the client must request the return of the security deposit to WEB himself; this is not automatic at closing. Approximately 6 weeks after the transfer, you can then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating the customer number, your bank account number with the bank details and a copy of your passport. It will then take 10 business days for the deposit to be returned to your account.
