We plan to close on a home in June. We noticed a lot of dog poop in the yard.

The property should be conveyed in broom-swept condition. All trash, rubbish and personal items not included in the sale should be removed.

Does dog poop fall under the category trash and rubbish? A rationale and reasonable sellers will clean up before the closing without a problem.

Read your contract clearly. Also, have your realtor communicate this concern with the listing agent. An amicable resolution and diplomatic communication are the best means of getting things done smoothly.
