Broom Clean Condition
When you sell a house the standard P&S (Purchase & Sale Agreement) says that the "seller will remove all contents from the premises and be free of all occupants and tenants and of all personal property, except property included in the sale or tenants permitted to remain. At the time for performance the Premises also shall … be broom clean and in the same condition as the Premises now are.....”
There is no legal definition of “broom clean" or "broom swept” condition, but the general understanding it that the seller will:
1. Remove all personal property not included in the sale, debris and trash prior to the closing 2. Vacuum the carpets and sweep the floor
How in the world do you get rid of all of the stuff out of your house to leave it broom clean? Sounds overwhelming, and it is! Add in the emotions and stress of moving and you have a proven recipe for stress and panic. There are people/companies who make a living cleaning out your home and leaving it in broom swept condition. They actually enjoy the challenge of donating, selling and discarding your unsellables. Watching the pros make the most out of dumpster space is honestly fascinating. They really know how to get out their frustrations on your unwanted stuff. #DemoDay
