If this means that you haven't bought the house yet... then DON'T.
Or at least not until AFTER it is connected to the city water service.
Can anyone provide... or b) A description of how it is done?
You tell the seller "no deal" until the trench is dug, the pipe is laid,
the meter and valve are set and the water is flowing.
(also check on the sewer service issues)
The seller will want to get a higher price for the property afterward.
Work that out with your lender and the appraiser.
ETA: fwiw $7300 sounds like a criminally high price for this job.
Do you have an attorney representing you in this purchase?
If not... get one immediately.
