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.

Here is what my clients have to say about my home inspection services:

I recently accompanied David Valley during his inspection of the house my son was buying. Having purchased a number of houses during my lifetime, I considered myself very knowledgeable and thorough. However, he surpassed me greatly, picking up on important details I would have missed. He frequently suggested ways on how something could be fixed or improved. He displayed broad knowledge of house structure, heating and cooling system, plumbing, electrical, etc. David is the best home inspector I have ever employed and I recommend him implicitly. Thank you for a great home inspection.

Sincerely yours,

Hartmut S.
