Massachusetts Home Inspections will not test residential Smoke alarms or Carbon Monoxide detectors in the Massachusetts area. The local fire department will issue a certificate to prove compliance of both of these detectors. You will not be responsible for the installation of these detectors. The Seller is always responsible for obtaining a compliance certificate before the close of escrow. You will not be able to close escrow without this compliance certificate, which the Seller's side will be providing at your closing. Upon moving into your new home, all Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Alarms will be code compliant according to the local fire department's recommendations.
New Hampshire residents do not apply to the Massachusetts law. I will personally inspect all Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide Detectors (if present) in the State of New Hampshire.

I was very impressed with you on Monday when we met in Peabody . I have never seen a home inspector spend 4 hours doing the most total inspection you did. And not only doing the inspection but educating your client at the same time.
I am sending you a new client, his name is Norman C. He is a good friend of mine. He is buying a house in Wenham on lake street and asked if I knew a "good" home inspector.
I have seen a lot of home inspectors over the years. The general contractor who couldn't make it on his own and thought that being a home inspector was another way of making money. But, all the while feeding his bad information along with his bad practices. David, your not that guy. I put you in the top 5% of all the home inspectors I've seen in the past 25 years. Well done!
