Isn't there anything in house sale contracts about clearing junk?

rebl · 06/01/2010 14:18

Did you buy vacant on possession? If so speak to your solicitor.

ChilloHippi · 06/01/2010 14:25

Can you get a house clearance firm in to take it all away?

Pannacotta · 06/01/2010 16:17

What a pita...

Most houses are sold with vacant possession to get in touch with your solicitor and try and get the clearance cost covered by the vendor.

So annoying isn't it when the vendors cant be arsed to clear up before they go. We had this too, manky old china, even worse old matress etc - which meant we had to do couple of trips to local dump.

Any interesting books?

JackBauerisreadyforDay8 · 06/01/2010 21:10

Lots of mysterious boxes and a locked trunk?

Any first editions?
It doesn't sound like it is his so I would say it comes with the house, unless there is anything personal (photos etc) and then you can track down the previous owners...

poorbuthappy · 06/01/2010 21:17

Oooo can I come over and help??? I love doing stuff like this...

I'll always feel slightly embarrassed about my moving experience. The EX had pissed off two weeks before we sold and I spent 2 weeks on my own every morning before work taking carloads of shite to the dump. On moving day I had the new owners in teh house asking me how to work the heating while I was madly stuffing things into the car and van. It was possibly one of the worst moving experiences I have had and the hottest day of the year too.

I ended up leaving a few things and was so lucky that they didn't get back to me to complain!

nymphadora · 06/01/2010 21:21

Anything interesting list them-I am obsessed collect certain books

Beasknees · 06/01/2010 21:22

Did you move to the Midsomer area? She says in her guise as DI john nettles

JackBauerisreadyforDay8 · 06/01/2010 21:26

Well, beasknees, I was thinking that about the suspiciously locked trunk...

chaostrulyreigns · 06/01/2010 21:26

It all sound quite exciting!

Maybe the Denby museum might be quite interested if the pieces are from the 30s?

Think I was looking at your Thread (council tax) earlier - and looked at your profile - are you West Mids?

If so 'hello' as I've been on here 6 months and not really found someone local to me - I'm salubrious WMids too!
