“I couldn’t be happier with the service I receive from ResidentLIfe Utility Allowances. I never have to remember when my annual review is due because they remind me with a quote each year. Two days after signing I have the rate comparison results, and we have a lot of utility providers in our county. Within two weeks I have the updated study binder with proposed utility allowances and full support documentation. When our auditor did the SEMAP review and we told him we used The Nelrod Company (ResidentLife Utility Allowances) to develop our utility allowances, they just checked it off the audit sheet and moved on to the next item. We won’t use anyone except ResidentLife Utility Allowances to handle our utility allowances. I highly recommend them!”
