Pursuant to Chapter 12 of the Rules of the City of New York, landlords must post a notice regarding carbon monoxide detectors in a common area of a building. See Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors for the landlord’s and tenant’s responsibilities regarding smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
Question: Is a landlord required to give a tenant a notice regarding carbon dioxide detectors upon a lease signing or renewal?
No, a landlord is not required to give a tenant a notice regarding carbon dioxide detectors upon a lease signing or renewal. Chapter 12 of the Rules of the City of New York does not impose such a duty on landlords.
I have seen landlords give combined notices for gas leaks and carbon monoxide to prospective tenants.
