Depends what you mean by "switched off".
If they have had to dig up the path in front of the house and crimp-off the supply pipe and cut the supply cable.. months.
If the meters have been removed.. a couple of weeks.
If the water and gas valves have simply been turned off, note the readings and turn them back on again after having checked that the systems are safe.
If the main fuse has been removed and the holder sealed, they will want a safety certificate completed before they will put it back - expect a couple of weeks delay.
If it is just that the consumer unit(s) are switched off, note the readings and switch them back on after having checked that the system is safe.

"Gas capped" sounds like they have taken the meter out. IIUC (I don't have gas, myself) you need a CORGI guy to certify that the system is safe before they will connect in a meter and turn the supply back on. In any event, even if they don't require it, it sounds a very good idea. The last owner might not have been that interested in leaving everything safe, under the circumstances..
