Don't Get Left in the Dark When Your Tenants Move Out

With GRU's "LEAVE IT ON!" service, the electric, gas and water will remain turned on after a tenant leaves, so you can clean up and prepare the unit for the next rental. It's easy, and it's free! Just fill out the LEAVE IT ON! Service Agreement, and mail it to:

Gainesville Regional Utilities
P.O. Box 147051
Gainesville, FL 32614-7051

Completed forms may also be emailed to customerservice@gru.com

Please note:

Leave It On add or removal requests must include a copy of the signatory’s valid driver’s license.  Missing documents and/or incomplete requests may cause a delay in processing as items submitted are processed in order of receipt.

Applicant agrees to provide GRU with a minimum of 10 business days’ written notice prior to a change in Applicant’s status as owner or manager of Applicant’s service address, including but not limited to, requests to enroll or cancel Leave It On Service.

"LEAVE IT ON!" Benefits

  • Utility connection charges are waived, which could save you up to $86.75 per rental unit.
  • You don't have to wait until the next day to have your utility services turned back on.
  • The meter will be read when your tenant cancels service, and the account will be switched to your name automatically. For your protection, the service will not be switched automatically if the utilities have been disconnected for non-payment.
  • You will receive a courtesy notice when an account is switched to your name. The notice GRU sends may be your first indication that your tenant is moving. This gives you a head start on preparing for the next rental.
