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.
