The answer is no. There is an expectation that the buyer will receive the same appliance as was in the home when the offer was made, unless otherwise specified in the real estate purchase contract. The contract also provides that the appliance will be in good working order on the day of closing. If problems with the appliance’s operation become apparent before closing day, we recommend you contact your realtor or your lawyer immediately, so you and the buyer can reach an agreement on how to address that issue early on and avoid confusion and potential claims around closing day.
