Selling Chometz

Question:

I’m in contract to buy a house,I gave small amt of money to real estate agent for the contract.I don’t think I have ownership until closing, is there any reason to sell chometz( maybe oven) Is it considered I have portion in house -oven?

Answer:

Without seeing the contract, the usual is that you do not have any real ownership in the house at this time, (for example you can’t ask the present owner for partial rent). This is because the “ownership is usually only when all the money is already paid for the house. Therefore the house still belongs to the goy.
