Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

co and smoke detectors

 

Massachusetts law requires that all residential structures be equipped with approved Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide Detectors, upon any Real Estate transaction.

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.

Hi Dave,

I just wanted to write and thank you very much for doing our inspection today. You really took an awful lot of extra time to explain things to us. It was a huge help and by far my favorite part of this whole home-buying process. In addition to drawing our attention to the major projects that need to be undertaken right away or in the near future, I was glad that you were also so thorough as to point out smaller things and provide suggestions for fixes that we'd be able to do ourselves. Thanks again for all your effort. I'm finding your "Know Your Home" book a great source of information along with your report. I'll no doubt have some questions for you at some point and really appreciate your willingness to answer them. Have a great rest of your weekend!

Take care,

Sean
