Kitchen cabinets, floors, furniture, and other items are all considered personal property. This includes anything from a house or something attached to it, such as a flag at the front of the 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 all considered part of the building.
This also includes additional structures on the property, such as fences or outbuildings (like a shed or garage). Refrigerators are also recognized as personal property, unless they are integrated into cabinets as a “Sub-Zero”. This can be confusing for consumers when accessories and personal goods are treated in the same way. For 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. As these items are considered permanent attachments, the seller cannot delete them unless they are excluded in writing.
