Countryside residents are required to obtain a Real Estate Transfer
before they are permitted to close on their property. You can call our
office if you are selling or buying a new property to obtain this transfer
form. If you live in La Grange, we recommend that you call our office to
obtain a final bill. We will also need proof of ownership in order to
transfer the account into your name.
We recommend that landlords contact the District when their tenant is
moving and request a final bill. Any unpaid charges belong to the
property and a new account will not be opened for a new tenant until all
outstanding charges are paid. A copy of the lease with the Renter’s
name and phone number are required.
WHAT IF I HAVE A CREDIT ON MY ACCOUNT?
We do not refund credits. We will issue a letter to the seller which will
allow them to include this credit in their closing costs.
