You cannot take it with you?

Tales of tight-fisted home sellers abound. In this amusing article from the Telegraph, Liz Gill contemplates some of the incomprehensible lengths such sellers have gone to. Examples include:

  • A clock taken off the clock tower of a country house.
  • The removal of ceiling roses from a period property.
  • The removal of all the brass fittings, right down to the last door hinge, to be replaced with cheap plastic.
  • A wooden spiral staircase.
Quite clearly some people are nutters, like the old lady who removed all the pendant light fittings by simply snipping them off with a pair of scissors. Despite lists of up to six pages long being appended to conveyancing documents, in which all fixtures, fittings and chattels are listed, some people still behave badly.
