A seller usually completes a "Fixtures and Fittings and Contents Form". This is a form that shows which items the seller is leaving at the house and which they are taking with them. It includes items from carpets and curtains to shelving, the cooker, fridge and plants in the garden. It can also state how much the seller will accept for an item if they are willing to sell any to the buyer for an extra amount.
