Customer Question

In what condition must a landlord leave a house to be rented,prior to purchase? I'm going to rent the property that I have contracted to purchase. The carpets are soiled from previous occupancy., and the dishwasher is broken. Do they have to clean the
house prior to me renting? There is also a spliced electrical connection in the attic that does not have a junction box. I purchased the house as is with the intent of removing the disgusting carpet. I want to give them a choice of cleaning the carpet or letting
me remove it.
