A big Thank You! to Raul Camaligan, a loan officer with Prospect Mtg for sharing this information. You may need to pay attention to this & save a life!
Did you know that California recently passed the Carbon Monoxide (CO) Poisoning Prevention Act, requiring that all single-family homes that have an attached garage, fireplace or fossil-fuel source have a carbon monoxide alarm installed.
Installation is quick and easy — usually just plugging into an outlet with a battery back-up. Many Agents are deciding to keep CO detectors on-hand to give to their clients before inspection if they do not have one.
The fee for not having a detector installed by the time of appraisal is $150 and a follow-up inspection will be required. Don’t let your clients suffer this potentially costly delay! If you have any questions about this requirement, or any other questions about the appraisal process, please give me a call!
