While mobilehomes are not specially required to have CO (carbon monoxide) alarms installed the new law requires the seller to disclosure whether CO alarms are installed.
We at ASK.CREIA highly recommend that CO alarms be installed in mobilehomes as a safety upgrade.
2010 Mobilehome/Manufactured Housing and Related Bill List
Final update - October 5.
Senate Bill 183 - CARBON MONOXIDE ALARMS Last Amended 3/25/10
Current law requires that smoke alarms be installed in manufactured homes or mobilehomes. Current law also requires, on the sale of real property or resale of a manufactured home or mobilehome, that a seller provide a buyer with a transfer disclosure statement (TDS) making specified disclosures or certifications regarding the property or home. This measure requires that owners of all existing single-family dwelling units on or before July 1, 2011, and all other existing dwelling units, although not specifically mobilehomes, on or before January 1, 2013, install a carbon monoxide device listed by the State Fire Marshal. The bill also requires the State Fire Marshal to certify and approve carbon monoxide devices for residential use. The bill revises mobilehome TDS requirements relating to installation of smoke alarms, garage door reversing mechanisms, and water heaters that are safety strapped, and adds a re-sale disclosure requirement for carbon monoxide devices.
