SB 183 revises the TDS and MHTDS to include a disclosure regarding compliance with the smoke detectors and water-heater bracing laws (eliminating the need for separate disclosure forms). The TDS and MHTDS will also add a disclosure regarding carbon monoxide detection devices. This law enacts the Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention Act of 2010. The law requires a carbon monoxide device (battery or hard-wired) to be installed in a “dwelling unit intended for human occupancy.” A violation is punishable by a maximum fine of $200 for each offense. Owners of residential rental property must also comply with this law. Tenants are responsible to notify the owner of an inoperable or deficient carbon monoxide device.

Installation Time Period:

  • On or before July 1, 2011 for existing single-family dwelling units
  • On or before Jan. 1, 2013 for all other existing dwelling units

Amends Sections 1102.6 and 1102.6d of the CA Civil Code and adds Sections 13260, 13261, 13262, 13263, 17926, 17926.1, and 17926.2 to the CA Health and Safety Code.
