The California Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention Act of 2010 requires a carbon monoxide detector device (battery or hard-wired) to be installed in all dwelling units.  

Our Golden State legislature and governor added this required seller disclosure to what already is large number of others for sale and transfer of homes and residential dwelling units. CA required disclosures
Existing single-family units must have this device installed on or before July 1, 2011, and all other existing dwelling units must have the device installed by January 1, 2013.
Carbon monoxide detection devices are expected to be available for purchase at Lowe's, Home Depot, Ace Hardware, and other home improvement retailers.  See manufacturer instructions for the number of devices and location of installation. 
sale of homes and dwelling unitsThe California Association of REALTORs form Transfer Disclosure Statement adds a disclosure for these devices, and no separate disclosure form is required. 
The transfer disclosure statement form in California now requires the seller to answer a variety of questions as to features of the property. 
This new law will change the transfer disclosure statement so that, effective January 1, 2011, the seller must inform whether or not the property contains one or more carbon monoxide detectors.

However, installation of such a carbon monoxide detection device is not a precondition of sale or transfer of the dwelling.
