Can I get back a chandelier (and other light fixtures) that were there at the time of signing the contract?

There was a large, beautiful chandelier in the foyer of a home we just signed the contract on. Additionally, there was another smaller chandelier in the dining room, and multiple light fixtures that I assumed would stay after I signed the contract.

HOwever, I just got back from the walk through and the two chandeliers were missing, and some of the other light fixtures were replaced with cheap looking ones that are just not my taste.

is there any way I can get those back, get the seller to replace them with equal quality fixtures, or even just get some money off for them?

You can if they were not listed in the contract as "not included" in the sale. Othewise all attached "fixtures" are considered part of the Real Property and should belong to the new owner. This is unfortunate and a source of much frustration for buyers. You can speak to your agent, who can convey your feelings to the sellers, but it might be easier, less upsetting too,if you let it go.

This depends on what's in the contract. Generally it is assumed that everything physically attached to the building comes with the building, but frequently the seller will specify certain items that they plan on taking out or replacing. For some reason this happens all the time with chandeliers.

If the fixtures were going to be removed, it **should** have been outlined in both the listing and in the sales contract. (This does not mean that it was, but it should have been.)

talk to your realtor. If its attached and it wasnt mentioned that those items didnt convey or that they would be replaced, then they should have to work out something.
