Have you heard of the California Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention Act of 2010?

California Carbon Monoxide Detector Requirements: Sellers& Landlords are you familiar with the law?

Effective July 1, 2011 there has been a law on the books, that sellers and landlords need to have Carbon Monoxide Detectors installed in their homes. The California Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention Act of 2010 requires that sellers and landlords need to install a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm or a CO alarm combined with a smoke detector that emits an alarm and has been tested and certified in accordance with standards developed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)

Detectors must be installed in all dwelling units that contain a fossil fuel-burning heater, appliance fireplace or that have an attached garage.

This law required that the disclosure forms state that the seller will certify that the property complies with the requirements for CO monitors as well as smoke detectors and water heaters.

Hence sellers need to be prepared that buyers will insist that such detectors be installed as condition of closing. If you are a buyer your Home Inspector should be able to tell you whether the house does in fact contain adequate CO detectors. FYI the cost of these detectors is around $90 per detector.
