Recently I bought a house and have my settlement date end of this week. Last Saturday, I had my final inspection and found out that owner left his two TV's hanging on the wall.
When I called the agent today, at first he said that owner will not be taking the TV as they are part of fixture but then he said that he will take the TV's but not the wall mount as they are part of permanent fixtures. I said to him if TV was a furniture then wall mount is considered part of part it and should be removed and any damaged caused to the wall should be fixed by the owner. But he said that I should be talking to my lawyer as he or the owner won't do a thing.
There is also a wall slightly damaged that I could not find as damage is in the walk in wardrobe and hidden by owner clothes when I inspected the property initially couple of times. It came to my attention during my final inspection after owner vacated the property. So I don't know if that wall already damaged and owner intentionally hide it from me or damaged it while moving. Upon bringing this up with the agent, he said its up to the owner he wants to fix or not.
What should I do in this case, what are my options here. Any suggestions.
P.S - Contract mentions that all fixtures and fittings cannot be removed.
Thanks again and appreciate everyone's prompt response.
**UPDATE - Thanks everyone for your input. Appreciate it. Finally we came to agreement that he will leave both the TV with bracket for free. And I did talked to my solicitor they said legally vendor has to take the tv brackets with them and fix the wall too. But I did not wanted to get into that hassle ( like everyone suggested) and sort things out with seller directly.
Thanks again guys, for sharing your thoughts.
