It is as much to do with hygiene as anything. Carpets are breeding grounds for bacteria etc, and I don't want to handle these dirty carpets if I don't have to. So I would have to pay someone to do it, and I don't see why I should. My question was really one of legality. Can I insist on them being removed legally?

Jeez. OP: get a life, mate.
Seriously, there are bigger things to worry about than sh*tty carpets in a property you've bought. Are you going to don a pair of Marigolds before you touch any of the door handles or the kitchen worktops? Will you be paying to have the house fumigated before you move in?

If it is written into the contract which both you and the sellers sign, then yes, you can "insist on them being removed legally".
If the contract you sign icludes the carpets, then clealy you can't insist!
