Can a bank after closing come back and request to remove appliances?Can a bank after closing come back and request to remove appliances? Here's some background on the situation. I just bought a foreclosed home in Minnesota. The bank was renting the place back to the previous owners after the foreclosure and they left the home before closing after being offered a cash-for-keys from the bank. The previous tenants left the appliances in the home (some of which are in good to average condition). Now after closing, the bank's realtor just contacted stating they either want me to purchase the appliances or give them back to the renters. Apparently the renters feel that they still have a right to the appliances. As with all foreclosures the home was sold as-is and I had even been told by the banks agent that the appliances wouldn't be removed since they hadn't been already. So my take is that they don't have any right to come back and take anything as it was sold as-is and they had conveyed it would be included. I never had any type of contact or contract with the former renters so legally I don't see how they can go after me. The banks agent claims their was a missunderstanding between them and the former owner (renter) but that would lead me to believe that's their problem, not mine. Does anyone have any addtional insight into this issue?March 16 2012 - Minneapolis00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
