That said, it is the responsibility of the sellers to leave them. That is what they agreed to do. On the other hand, it is the buyer's responsibility to do a final walk through of the property either the day of the closing or possibly the day before and then make sure that everything in the house is there that is supposed to be. If not, you deal with the seller at that point, and if it is serious enough, you have the right to refuse to sign and close until they take care of it. Usually, it is an oversight and they accidentally forgot to leave something.
I would have your agent call the seller's agent immediately and ask for it. The problem with Minnesota law is that once you sign, you have fully accepted the condition of the property. So if they left a pile of garbage at the house....you're stuck with it. If they forgot to take the lawn tractor that was in the shed....it now belongs to you.
Most buyers and seller, I have found, are very understanding and will usually just take care of the issues. Just do it quickly if possible before they don't care any longer.
I hope that helps,
See my answer on your other entry about this. Ordinarily, you would have had an opportunity to walk through to see what the house was like BEFORE you closed. Did you do that??
Also, wondering what does your agent say??? Your agent should be giving you this information. This is an easy one.
Here's my other answer:
