Closing on a rental but owner still has all his stuff there!

1 Reply

So I am closing on a rental home from out of town in two days.  I spoke with my realtor today and the seller still has all his possession in the home and does not plan on having them out by the time I close.  Shoud I push back my closing date?  

Should be made explicitly clear that they are to have the posessions removed or they forfeit everything left behind to you (comes with the property now), or id they aren't open to that, a storage fee.

Ran into something similar with a multi family building. Owner left furniture in the basement and old tools etc. Had relayed to a tenant that they wanted to pick up the furniture at a later date. 2 years later and still there, so i scrapped it. Wish i would have sorted that at closing.
