What is asked when transferring utilities into a company name: you are asked the address of the company, company name and identification number (if you are not transferring a company’s utilities, you will need the individual’s social security number). If the tenant is supposed to have transferred utilities but fails to, Columbia Gas will send out a letter stating that utilities will be turned off in ten days if the tenant still fails to contact them.
