What are landlord / tenant responsibilities?

In rental dwellings in which carbon monoxide (CO) alarms are required, the landlord must ensure that properly functioning CO alarms are installed, provide working batteries at time of move-in, and provide the new tenant with alarm testing instructions. A tenant must test the alarm at least every six months and replace batteries as needed, and notify landlord in writing of any operating deficiencies.
