A: That should've been resolved at closing . . . because Buyer did a final walk-through the morning of closing, noticed it, and brought it up at closing.

If not, that's egg on the Buyer's face, and I think the item belongs to Buyer now -- esp. if it's affixed to the ground. I say it's Buyer's responsibility now.
