As real estate agents it’s our responsibility to make sure the property that our clients are selling is going to pass the Smoke Alarm Inspection. So, don’t forget to check the alarms to make sure you have the right ones near the kitchen and bathroom. Remember any smoke alarms that are within in 20 feet of the kitchen or bathroom with a bath tub or shower must be photoelectric smoke alarms. The alarms are not over 10 years old. Many students ask us where do we find the date the smoke alarm was manufactured.

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. We just wanted to let you know that on Dec 1st new regulations require owners of single or multi-family homes built prior to 1975 to replace expired and non-working smoke detectors with new ones equipped with a ten year sealed battery. Fire departments will be checking for compliance when they conduct smoke alarm inspections.
We always tell all of our students to check with the local fire department to make sure they understand what is required for the property to pass the smoke alarm inspection. The fire marshal has created a consumer fact sheet for smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detectors which you can find by clicking here
