Every region uses their own standard contracts for sales. Those contracts show what conveys, that is, stays in the house, with the sale. If you want something to convey that is not standard for the region, you have to have it written in the sales contract. Dishwashers and stoves are considered to be built in, and therefore usually convey. Refrigerators are easily taken out, that's why in some areas they don't convey and in other areas they do. Our last move was to a different county in the same state. The state part of the sales paperwork was the same for both houses, however the county parts of the sale contracts were a little different. The state contract has the refrigerator conveys unless otherwise agreed to by both the seller and the buyer.
