You are under no obligation to install a drain. But refusal may nix the sale.

You should call your local code office for confirmation, but I'd pipe it so that it drains onto the garage floor. It needs to be 3/4" minimum.

Or, if you have a hub drain in the closet- pipe to that- turn down a 90 at the hub drain
