Dear Monica: I am buying a property with As-Is with no contingencies and we are due to close this week. The seller is leaving lots of cut plants and trees and won’t remove them. Can I ask him to remove this debris? James C.
Dear James: The answer is “yes”, because there is a provision in the contract that says that seller must remove all personal property and debris and leave the property “broom clean”. Even if the debris is not inside the home but on the premises, the seller should not expect that it is okay to leave it there without getting the buyer’s approval.
