Bradenton, FL asked in Uncategorized for Florida

Q: Can a seller remove the contents from a home that was offered for sale as furnished after the contract is in effect?

The contract is an "as is" contract. Line 23, " The following items are excluded from the purchase" is blank. The real estate agent told us that everything in the house would remain except for a few personal items that the seller would take with him on a commercial flight to Nebraska. However, the seller has removed many items of value and is shipping them. He has also given away or disposed of many other items. Can he legally remove items from the property?
