Fixtures: What Stays When You Buy a House?

Usually anything that’s attached to the house is considered a fixture. Fixtures can be outside, too, like trees and permanent parts of the landscaping.

Here’s an example: Curtain rods and blinds are usually fixtures. Curtains and drapes are not, because they’re not attached to the house.

If you’re buying and you want something to stay, there’s no harm in asking for it. In fact, even if you’re not sure whether something is a fixture, it doesn’t hurt to include it in your purchase contract.
