Well, when I go to buy a house, I'm sure as hell going to ask now. I don't care if it makes me look weird! What an awful predicament!

When we bought our home, the previous owner did the same thing. We called the realtor we bought the house through and complained. The owner had a legal obligation to bring back the things he took and reinstall them himself. I don't if that will work for you, but it's worth a try!

Yeah they need to inform you if they're going to do that and have it written in the contract. If its not written in the contract and they did so that is illegal. But congrats on your new home and sorry that happened to you.

Sue. That is a blatant violation of your contract. Not likely that the owner taking the toilet was in your agreement. You bought a foreclosure didn't you?

If you were from the US I'd say sue 'em, but since you're a Kiwi, my recommendation is call Fair Go and get this guy shamed on national television :)

You know you can sue in NZ right? It's only personal injury you can't sure for because that's covered by ACC.

sadly, people buy things all the time that cost more than their savings so they spend more money than they even have, and do it so much that it builds up a bubble and it eventually pops. its a long story of what happens after that, but in short, everyone gets fucked. except bank ceo's...apparently they get raises

Yeah, but usually the house is occupied when they do look, so everything would have been there when they went to look. That sucks OP, FYL.

But it's in the mortgage what is and what is not included when you purchase the house.. Op should have read the mortgage thoroughly and if the seller did not include what they were supposed to op can do something about it. That's how it was with my realtor anyway.

Seriously, amongst the missing microwave you also signed away your first child and the virginity of you anus.

Obviously the previous owner was deceptive. OP would of been interested in the house and asked to view the house. On inspection there would of been a toilet and stove because if the bare basics are missing, any normal person would of run for the hills.

146- if you're going to correct anyone's grammar, it should be your own. It really doesn't make ANY damn sense.

that's why you need to make sure your contract states what's going to be left in the house. Or that the house is "as is" so if the previous owner tries to pull something like that.

I would suggest you get a toilet first, then the oven. Toilets are important. Unless you you want to be digging holes in your back yard.
