Can I Sell My Home With A Non-Compliant Toilet?

See 2017 Statewide Rule below There is nothing in the law that requires installation of water-conserving plumbing fixtures as a condition of sale. However, if you haven’t already installed water conserving plumbing fixtures on your pre-1994 property, then you are in violation of the law. See below for the CAR explainer below on this issue.

Some local cities or jurisdictions (including the city of Los Angeles) may have their own rules. Some cities, including Burbank and Manhattan Beach, require 1.28 GBF toilets when selling, not the 1.6 GBF noted in this explainer. Best to check with us if you have any questions at 310-800-4418.
