The purchase contract emphasizes that certain items convey with the purchase of the property including blinds, ceiling fans, curtain rods and brackets, built-in dishwasher, door knockers, garage door openers and controls, gas fireplace logs and inserts, installed floor and wall coverings, installed mirrors, light fixtures, mailbox and post, built-in range, shades, shrubs, exterior plants and trees, shutters, smoke and heat detectors, storm windows and storm doors, switch and receptacle covers, television antennae, window screens and screen doors.
Technically, anything that requires a tool to remove from the seller’s home is a fixture and is a part of the purchase price, unless otherwise stated in the listing agreement. Everything else is the seller’s personal property.
Personal property that MAY convey would include range, refrigerator, washer, dryer, window air conditioning units, and humidifiers. Sometimes the sellers will state these items will convey, other times they are negotiable and the sellers may see your inclusion of those items in the contract as a decrease in the net profit.
Some items that would cause confusion may include chandelier or other special light fixtures, fireplace screen and tools, mounted-to-the-wall bookcase, built-in microwave oven, workbench, curtains and curtain rods, mounted shelves, hanging bathroom mirrors, ceiling fans, swing set, storage shed, wood-burning stove, TV satellite or antennae, inside shutters, and movable kitchen cabinets or island. When inspecting a property and choosing it for your new home, make sure these items convey with the home and that they're written into the purchase contract.
