Ready to transition to Coral Terrace and Flagami Living?

Here are 7 things you need to do IMMEDIATELY when moving to Coral Terrace and Flagami. 


Starting Over In A Residential Gem: The "Firsts" of Setting Up Your Coral Terrace And Flagami Home

Starting over in a new city means getting the BASICS of owning (or renting) a home sorted before attempting to settle in (it's pretty hard to relax without running water or a heater to warm you up at night, right?).

So, before you move into your new Coral Terrace or Flagami home, don't forget to set up your utilities — electricity, natural gas, and water!

To get your new home up and running, log into your existing Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) website account to request a service transfer to your new address — you'll only need to advise FPL of the date of disconnection (old address), the date of re-connection, and the complete address of your new home.

If you're moving from a different state or country, submit an online application with your Social Security, Driver's License, Social Insurance, or Tax ID number, the complete service address, and the connection date!

A deposit of $25 (minimum) and initial set-up fees may be charged before service connection, whether you're a new or existing FPL customer.

For your natural gas service, check for service availability with TECO Peoples Gas and Florida City Gas (FCG)!

Upon confirmation, you can submit the necessary IDs and date of connection through your newly created online account, or if you're an existing consumer, advise TECO or FCG of the disconnection date (old address), re-connection date, and the new address.

Charges may include deposit fees based on your home's square footage or equal to twice the average monthly bill and a connection fee.

Lastly, check for water and sewer availability on the Miami-Dade Water & Sewer website!

Once confirmed, create an online account and deposit $50 for water, $50 for sewer, and a non-refundable $45 connection fee, or settle any outstanding balance on your account before requesting a service transfer if you're an existing customer.


Welcome To The New Age: The Essentials Of A Modern Lifestyle

Part of turning your house into a HOME is adding all the "extras" you need to make your transition as smooth and comforting as possible, and it includes a reliable internet connection and access to your favorite TV show —  tell me otherwise!

So, if you have yet to set up your cable and internet at your new address, look to providers like Comcast Xfinity and AT&T!

After you've sorted through their bundles, pick your preferred plan and apply for a new service online or in person at the nearest store —all you need are your complete address and proper IDs to set it up with no sweat!

On the other hand, if you already have an existing account with Comcast and AT&T,  settle any remaining balance and request a service transfer to your new home — yes, it's that simple! 

Please note that there may be upfront charges like deposits, activation/installation, and equipment rental fees.


Navigating Florida: Your Ticket To The Sunshine State's Wonders

Congratulations on moving to the Sunshine State!

If you're coming from another country or state, get a Florida driver's license to make everything official!

Aside from being a REQUIREMENT within 30 days of establishing residency, your Florida driver's license allows you to drive across Florida without breaking the law, so really, it's a no-brainer!

To get your license, visit the nearest Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) or any local office offering driver's license services and submit the necessary documents. 

Click on the applicable residency status to know which documents to have on hand when you apply:

The initial Florida Class E license, including a learner's permit, is $48.00, a commercial driver's license (Class A) is $75.00, and an ID Card fee is $25.00. 

For a complete list of driver's license fees, click here.

Meanwhile, if you already have a Florida driver's license, notify the DMV to get a new license with your updated address — it's a MUST and punishable by law.

If you already have a current or previous driver's license from another state, country, or jurisdiction, taking the Vision and Hearing test is still a MUST, but you may be allowed to skip the mandatory Drug and Alcohol courses and the Class E Knowledge exam.

Oh, and don't forget to get insurance to title and register your vehicle(s) within ten (10) days of establishing residency!
