Question and Answer Regarding Regarding Whether Mirrors

Stay on Property Upon the Close of Escrow

Question: Do mirrors in bathrooms remain at a property after the close of escrow by the sellers?

Answer: It depends. If the mirror is attached to the wall, it is a fixture and should be left at the property by the seller. However, if the mirror is hanging, similar to a picture, the seller may generally remove the mirror. Buyers are advised to consider this issue when writing offers and include mirrors that they intend to purchase as part of the property in the purchase and sale agreement.
