*Another important update regarding Smoke Detector and Carbon Monoxide detector inspections:*

The Governor signed an executive order today affecting the temporary deferral of smoke and CO inspections required by M.G.L. Chapter 148 Section 26F and 26F 1⁄2

According to this executive order, the order defers smoke and CO inspections required under Section 26F and 26F 1⁄2 for up to ninety (90) days after this state of emergency is lifted provided:

 (a) The buyer and seller agree, in writing, that the buyer not the seller shall be responsible to equip the property with compliant smoke and CO detectors/alarms and;

 (b) The buyer agrees to equip the property in accordance with 527 CMR 1.00, Chapter 13.

Due to this executive order, we will NOT be performing smoke and CO detector inspections until the state of emergency has been lifted. We apologize for this inconvenience.
