A: The term "as is" really relates to whether the seller is making any warranties or representations- not what is staying o going at the property. This really comes down to whether there is a paragraph in the contract that speaks to what is staying or not. A washer and dryer would generally not be considered a fixture to the real estate. They can be unplugged and taken out without damaging the property. As a result unless the contract specifically refers to what happens with appliances- then they the washer and dryer may not have conveyed. BUT this is really subject to the terms and language of the Contract. and the surrounding documents- look at the listing documents- does it refer to the washer and dryer. You should consult with an attorney.
