Who’s satellite dish is it?

According to the language in the NWMLS purchase and sales agreement, when a buyer purchases a home from a seller anything fixed to the home is included in the sale unless stated otherwise.  What happens to the satellite dish that is fixed to the home? Shouldn’t it automatically transfer to the new buyer? The answer…? No it is neither the buyer or the seller’s property. In most cases the satellite dish company owns the equipment. If the new seller wants it gone then all they must do is pick up the phone. Or if they would prefer to use it they can sign up for service and I’m sure the satellite dish company will be more than happy to put them in a new contract!
