Why are temporary utilities provided?

To complete the inspection, the inspector requires the water and electricity to be functioning in the home. The applicant or Building Inspections department can authorize temporary electric utility service for ten days while repairs are underway. Water service can also be authorized for a period not to exceed ten days, assuming that the owner properly sets up a water account with a deposit.
