13 Aug Mower included with house sale
I’m buying a house with a small amount of land. The sellers have a nice zero turn mower, I asked for this in my original offer. They accepted.
Underwriters told me to sign an addendum taking the mower out. Wrote in the addendum they would sell me the mower for $1 after closing on the house. Loan officer was fine with this. Today they told me it has to be completely removed from the contract. What can I do to gurantee I get the mower? Verbally tell the sellers I’ll refuse to close if they take it for some reason? In that scenario I know I would be in breach of the contract.
The mower is probably worth ~5000 dollars. I wish I would’ve just asked for that off the asking price in the first place and avoided this.
