Carbon Monoxide Detectors are now required in all California dwellings – presence or absence must be disclosed on the TDS

Comsa Group - logo-blue
A new law came into effect on January 1, 2011 mandating that all California dwellings have working carbon monoxide detectors installed on site. This rule, formally presented in Senate Bill 183 and signed into law last May, further requires that sellers disclose in the TDS whether or not a carbon monoxide detector is present and it requires sellers to certify that certain safety laws have been followed. Failure to make these disclosures could leave the seller liable for civil penalties. However, the penalties are nominal and they cannot invalidate the property transfer.
