I was amazed when visiting a friend in Germany when she informed me that all of the "fittings" went with the previous owner/renter. They had to provide their own when they moved in. It was common for closets, kitchen cabinets, sinks, you name it to not be included in the sale/rent. Now that was a shocker!

Jannie - in Europe that is very common. the idea of the component (as opposed to built-in) kitchen was born there. Ikea and Bulhaupt have brought that idea stateside recently. I saw an episode of House Hunters International where an American family was surprised to learn this. It is important to understand different cultures/countries have different approaches. It doesn't make it bad, just different. Knowledge is power. :)
