    If you are ethical, you leave them if they were there when the purchase was made. You are selling the site as ranked. It would be dishonest to sell a site, then pull the SEO out from under it.

    If this wasn't specified in the purchase agreement, it doesn't matter. A smart buyer will know to ask the question. A savvy seller will either stipulate this point, or leave it out on purpose and find himself in your exact position.You're call. Personally I would leave the links in place as it would likely take more effort for me to remove the links than to leave them.
