Smoke Detector Law in Effect January 1, 2018
A new Maryland law took effect January 1st. It is aimed at improving public safety by requiring a new type of smoke detector. Any 9-volt battery operated smoke alarm that is more than 10 years old must now be replaced with a unit powered by a 10-year sealed-in battery that has a "hush" button feature to shut it down if it's accidentally tripped.
Landlords must comply with other requirements in the new laws as well. More than 800,000 Maryland homes with battery-only alarms are estimated to be affected.
Real estate professionals will want to pass this information on to their clients and contacts.
~ Thanks to Pat McLister, Salisbury McLister and Foley, for bringing this to the membership's attention!
