WHAT TO DO IF A SELLER LEAVES BEHIND JUNKS WHEN YOU MOVE IN?
This situation while regrettable does happen from time to time. Here’s some suggestions on what you – the Buyer – can do.
Take pictures of the items that need to be removed.
Get an estimate from a contractor for removal (there are several companies in the Okanagan) Appleton Waste Services 1-800-663-5117, 1-800-GOT-JUNK (1-800-468-5865) or some waste management companies
Contact your REALTOR® and ask if they can contact the Sellers REALTOR® to discuss the situation and requesting a contribution to the invoice for removal. Give a deadline for response noting that an option may be to file a claim in BC Small Claims Court.
