I would not recommend jeopardizing your closing over a utility bill. As mentioned below, this could cause the buyer to lose his financing. It could also give the buyer a reason to walk away. Or sue you for performance. &lt;shudder&gt;<br/><br/>Whatever the issue is between you and your agent can be worked out after closing.
