    Vendor wants to leave things in garage 3rd Jan 18 at 8:47 PM
    Hi!

    Clueless FTB here looking for some advice. Offer accepted in October, with an aim to complete by the end of January.

    Just bumped into the vendor by chance in the street, who mentioned that they are moving by themselves and were hoping to be able to leave some stuff in the garage.

    Didnít really say much, but isnít this a terrible idea? If the items get damaged etc. Also, the garage is connected to the house, so either they keep the keys or organise for us to pick up.

    The vendors have been quite nice, so donít want to let anyone down. Anyway of handling this gently?

    We don't know what the seller wants to leave behind. I think it is more likely that someone will steal pots from a garden.
