Does the seller get to keep the swimming pool robot vacuum?

QUESTION: I just performed a final walk-through with my buyers, and I noticed that the seller has removed the robot vacuum from the swimming pool. The Offer to Purchase and Contract (Form 2-T) clearly states that “all related equipment and remote control devices” concerning all of the items listed in paragraph 2(a) “are deemed fixtures and shall convey” unless specifically excluded in the contract. Does the seller have to return the pool vacuum to my buyers? It was a really cool robot!  Discover the answer »

N.C. travelers need to obtain a REAL ID by 2020

Congress passed the REAL ID Act requiring states to issue identification that meets higher security standards. People will need this REAL ID to fly domestically, access federally-owned properties and other locations by October 2020. Without a REAL ID, you will need to contact TSA and each federal facility about the additional identification required for flying and entering military bases, nuclear power plants and other federal facilities.

Make things easier on yourself by obtaining your REAL ID early. Schedule your appointment with the DMV by calling (919) 715–7000.  Read more »
