Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarms and Selling your home:
A CO alarm detects carbon monoxide and produces a distinctive audible alert when CO is detected. It may be a standalone unit or part of an alarm system. (OAR 837-047-0110) If a home has a CO source, CO alarms are required before it can be sold.
Starting April 1, 2011, sellers of one-and two-family dwellings, manufactured dwellings, or multifamily housing containing a CO source must have one or more properly functioning CO alarms before conveying fee title or transferring possession of a dwelling. (OAR 837-047-0120).
Homes built during or after 2011 require a CO alarm regardless of the presence of a CO source.
