Washington, DC asked in Real Estate Law for Florida

Q: Washer/dryer with home purchase

Hi purchasing home in FL. Asked our agent about the washer/dryer , she stated the seller didn't want to leave them which she stated she would take care of the washer and dryer. Message the our agent yesterday because we were closing and she stated she made the comment to close the deal because we would have walked. Seller never stated on documents they would be taking those appliances. How should we proceed of getting these items ?

A: They are personal property and, as such, belong to the seller unless the contract provides otherwise. If, when you looked at the house you saw the seller's clothes in the closet, would you expect to get the clothes? Same idea.
