If the House is Vacant, do we Need to Have all of the Utilities Turned on to Inspect the House?

Yes. All utilities include electricity and water. If the house has gas equipment, such as a gas furnace or gas water heater, then the gas must be on as well. When one utility is not on, that system cannot be tested during the inspection, which means we can’t determine if the system or equipment is operating properly. Not knowing can cost you thousands or your family’s safety.
