I just closed another HUD. This time the Inspector recommended Hummel Plumbing. They came and turned on the water and then re-winterized for I believe it was $125.00 total. The property was in Aurora and they didn't charge anything for turn on and turn off for the water. When I called the gas/electric companies they told me to just flip the switch everything was already on at the house.
Hope that helps and I hope all goes well with your HUD transaction! The people at MCBREO are so helpful, they'll help you make sure everything works out.
