I am focused on purchasing my grandfather's two family home and making three units with the basement. My biggest concern is the units do not have there own light or heat, what steps do I make this happen?

As to your question, you will need to check with the utility company and ask them what will be required. Also, check with your local planning department to see if the zoning allows for that type of use.
