Real Estate: Who Is Right?

After the close of a sale, the seller of a home removes a 8' by 10' metal prefab storage shed from the property. The buyer says the the shed is real property and should stay on the property as part of the sale.

Who is right? How could this problem have been avoided?

    Things like prefab sheds and swing-sets are considered personal property as they are not permanently affixed to the ground. Your purchase contract should have identified the shed stays with the property. If it didn't, the seller can take it. The problem could have been avoided if represented by a smarter/more experienced real estate agent.

    what link86 said....but the problem could be easily avoided by the buyer using the mouth God gave them to ask....hey, is this included in the sale? Not too hard, right!

    yes, I will do your homework for you:

    = the contract should have listed if the shed was staying or leaving.
