There are some, but when I moved house I got so fed up with the constant too-ing and fro-ing with the vendors, I ended up telling them to take what they were going to take and leave what they were going to leave, otherwise we'd never have exchanged contracts.

At least we managed to move in to what is a very nice house.
I'd left our shower curtain at the last house, sure the purchasers would want to change it, but at least they could have a shower on moving day which was more than we could.

To be fair to the previous owners, he did say to me they have a couple of canoes they could leave, and i just casually said yes, thinking like blow up things or tiny little canoes, i didnt realise he meant great big canoes. so partially my fault for not inspecting them on viewing.
but alls well that ends well

Should have replied, "Canoe not get rid of 'em instead?"

hehe. I bought my flat with the contents left in situ as I knocked them down quite a bit. Cost me £65 for rubbish disposal of bulky items and I sold the good stuff so that helped with the disposal costs. I needed to get in in a hurry otherwise I might have used freecycle but most of the stuff did smell!
