Oh, boy.  The question hasn't actually been asked yet in this case, but I immediately pictured a wild scene at the final walk-through.  Railings and bannisters clearly are "fixtures" in a house, meaning they must stay put for the buyer.  But what if the basement stair railing was fashioned from, ...
