Regular fixtures are real property and are legally part of the real estate. They are converted from personal property into real property through the process of attachment. The most common examples of fixtures in a home are the sinks, toilets, bathtubs, counters and ceiling lights.
Because they are part of the real property, home sellers are usually prohibited from ripping them out when they sell their real estate. As real estate, fixtures are included in the real estate sales contract and are transferred through the deed.
