Buyers are often impressed by a property’s features such as solar panels or a large porch. The house or building may also have beautiful light fixtures, commercial appliances or an outdoor kitchen with a grill. Which items the Seller is intending to sell and which items the Buyer is intending to purchase with the property is often a source of dispute and has led to litigation post-closing between Buyers and Sellers. Component parts of a house or building are transferred with the property. But what are the component parts of a house or building?
Component parts are defined in Article 466 of the Civil Code which provides: Things that are attached to a building and that, according to prevailing usages, serve to complete a building of the same general type, without regard to its specific use, are its component parts. Component parts of this kind may include doors, shutters, gutters, and cabinetry, as well as plumbing, heating, cooling, electrical, and similar systems.
