California New Carbon Monoxide Detector Law

By

As of July 1, a new California state law requires homeowners to install carbon monoxide detectors. The Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention Act, Senate Bill 183, mandates that all single-family homes with attached garages, gas appliances, or fireplaces (by July 1, 2011) and multifamily or rental units (by January 2013) have the devices installed. Expect to see California appraisers call for this item as they do for hot water straps, smoke detectors, and other jurisdictional requirements.  Help reduce re-inspection fees by having Borrowers and Sellers install this item prior to an appraisal inspection.


California
Cal. Health & Safety Code § 13260 to 13263 – Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention Act of 2010

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Requires State Fire Marshal to developed approved carbon monoxide device list. Prohibits marketing, distribution or sale of devices not on the approved list.

 


Cal. Health & Safety Code § 17926 to 17926.2 – Regulation of Buildings Used for Human Habitation

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Requires installation of approved carbon monoxide detectors in single-family dwellings by July 1, 2011, and for all other dwellings by 2013 if those dwellings contain a fossil fuel burning heater or appliance, fireplace, or an attached garage. Applies to rental property. Provides $100 penalty upon sale or transfer of noncompliant dwellings.

Here in Oregon these detectors became a requirement with every home sold in April.
