Seller Removing Fittings Before Moving Out.

Recommended Posts

Made an offer on a property, asking if I could get curtains. Verbally they said yes.

But now in the written acceptance of the offer they are saying they want to keep the curtain poles and rings. Amongst a few other things they also they want to remove light fittings from some of the rooms but will "replace with standard fittings".

Advice?

Anything screwed to a wall is part of 'fixtures and fittings' and I don't think should be removed without negotiation via your solicitor.

Putting up curtain poles is a pain, so if you like what they're proposing to take I'd certainly argue about it.

When we bought the house we're in now, the b*tch we bought it from removed every single curtain rail and all the light bulbs, even though I let her stay 4 days beyond completion because her new house wasn't ready. I was then on my own with a 3 month old baby and had to put up all new curtain rails by myself.

I think it was her hugely p*ssed-off revenge on Mr B for driving a very hard bargain over the house in the first place. We were living in the Mid. /East at the time - she very sniffily said, 'You are not in an Arab market place now.'

He said, 'Take it or leave it' - so she took it, inc. all the curtain rails. :(
