Kitchen cabinets, floors, furniture, and other items are considered personal items. Personal property can include items from a house or something attached to a house. Your furniture is personal property, just like a flag you place at the front of your house. Structural elements, on the other hand, are things that are attached to the apartment or unit.
Hardwood or tile floors, countertops, and other cabinets are considered part of the building. This also includes additional structures on the property, such as fences or outbuildings (such as a shed or garage). Make sure your agent is aware of any additional structures on your property. Refrigerators are also recognized as personal property, unless they are integrated into cabinets as a “Sub-Zero”.
This creates confusion on the part of the consumer when accessories and personal goods are treated in the same way. As an example, if a stove is built into kitchen cabinets and cannot be easily removed, then it has become an accessory. But if the stove is freestanding and not permanently attached to the structure, then it is still personal property and is not an accessory or part of the selling price unless specifically included. Because they are considered permanent attachments, the seller cannot delete these items unless they are excluded in writing.
