    I'll fight you for the job!

    Carpets are likely to be the least your worries. the ones in my new house were horrid and manky. Worse, they were cut AROUND the furniture! They kindly left that furniture ... which I didn't want, but it was a probate sale and I wanted the house and couldn't really be bothered with arguing over some random wardrobes. OH and I spent a few days lifting carpets and removing grippers and smashing up oversized furniture, then did a few trips to the tip. Part of the ceremony of turning a random house into your new home.

    Seriously, you have no idea what size the house is or just how manky these carpets are. :)

    You can ask them to remove the carpets. With their agreement, you can make it a condition of the sale/purchase contract. And you can still turn up to the house on completion day and find the carpets in there. You will then need to get someone in to remove the carpets if you have such a strong aversion to touching them and sue the vendors for breaching the terms of the contract to recover the cost of the removal. Would you take it that far?

    Personally, I think there is no harm in asking but you should be equally prepared for having to remove the carpets yourself.
