The seller claims he didn't know he had to move on closing. He won't hire a removal company and he doesn't drive and lives alone.
I was wondering if anyone has any advice?
we had that exact thing happen.
were sale agreed since, Jan. Said we don't want any of the furniture.
Contracts exchanged, just before all the money was transferred and we were about to get the keys when found out on final inspection, that non of the stuff was removed. Seller was calming he could not do it due to personal circumstances.
Was delayed for 3 weeks ( I think on purpose, because we didn't ant to buy hi old junk). We were lucky that our letting agency was understandable and allowed us to stay in our rented place until we got the keys.
The whole process went so smooth and fast up until that pint....which made me so pissed.
Got the keys 2 weeks ago.
Nothing we could do to speed it up unfortunately.
