includes information for use by Realtors and Title Companies

For Buyers of Homes or Property

If you are considering purchasing property within CCME, please contact us prior to your purchase to verify the property is current and the property water rights are in place.

If you have already purchased property within CCME, please contact us with your contact information including legal names on deed, current mailing address, current telephone number and email address.

Any outstanding balance will be the responsibility of the current owner and is not expunged by the sale or issuance of a Treasurer’s deed.

Depending on the type of property being purchased, residence or vacant land, there is a member transfer fee for both. The specific fee may be viewed under our schedule of fees. This fee may be paid by the buyer, seller or shared.

We highly recommend that all sales be conducted through the use of a Title Company. This will assure you of a property free and clear of any liens or balances due.

Once the purchase is complete, a copy of the recorded deed and customer contact information is necessary.

We encourage you become familiar with the membership opportunities and obligations presented in other parts of this website. MMWC is a little different from most "water utilities" you may be familiar with.

For Sellers of Homes or Property

If you are selling your property within CCME, please contact us prior to your closing to make sure the title company has requested a final statement.

We highly recommend that all sales be conducted through the use of a Title Company. This assures the seller of protection from future claims against the property.

If you are not using a title company, please contact us with the name of the buyer and a contact telephone number for them also.

Since there is a member transfer fee for both residences and vacant land, if you are not using a title company, the member transfer fee will need to be paid by either the seller, buyer or shared.

A copy of the recorded deed will need to be provided to us once the sale is complete to properly transfer the water rights associated to the property.

For Builders of New Homes

The property owner is responsible for compliance with the requirements of the water company and with the property owner's association; however, the builder will usually be involved to meet those requirements. Being familiar with these requirements can be of great assistance to the property owner and will help prevent conflicts and delays during construction.

  1. Get Connection Requirements and the Cistern Diagram either from the water company office or download from the Requirements / Rules page.
  2. Be aware that building plans are to be submitted to the Cripple Creek Mountain Estates Property Owners Association. Their requirements are on their website, but plans must fully comply with the requirements of MMWC.
  3. Similarly coordinate building plans with the Teller County Builidng Department. No water connections will be made until such plans have been approved.
  4. See Water Policy for specifics on connecting to water system.
