Probably not, but codes vary greatly from state to state and even in different the best thing to do is to call the code enforcement officer that has the authority where the house is...

At any rate I would have it removed or moved before closing on the property...

Getting rid of lizards on my patio

Best Ways to Get Rid of Lizards
1. Egg Shells: Lizards will leave the place because the odour of eggs will make lizards assume that there is another organism present in the premises. Keep some eggshells around the corners of your house, doors, and windows.
2. Coffee Powder
This is a very effective method to get rid of lizards. Combine tobacco and coffee powder and make balls. Keep the prepared balls on every corner of the house and the places where lizards hide the most. After eating these balls, they will either die or move away from your house
.3. Garlic
Lizards cannot stand the smell of garlic. This remedy may sound weird to you, but hanging some garlic cloves around your house will keep the lizards away

  • Alternatively, you can place some garlic cloves in the corners and the entrances of the house or spray garlic juice in the lizard-prone areas.
4. Pepper Spray
Pepper spray irritates lizards. This remedy will make them run away. Prepare a solution by mixing crushed black pepper and water. Spray this solution all around the house, in kitchen racks, under the stove, fridge and tube light corners.
5. Onion
Onion contains sulphur compounds which are responsible for bad odour. Lizards can't tolerate the pungent smell of onion. Hang some onions around all the doors, windows and all the other possible entrances. Or else, keep some onions in the areas encroached by the lizards. This creepy reptile will leave the place soon.

Igniter knobs on my gas stove turn just enough to let gas escape.

There isn't much you can do to the stove outside of buying a stove that has standing pilots or shutting off the gas each time you leave the kitchen. This is a problem with the pilotless design. If the knob isn't turned far enough the activate the spark switch, gas can escape without being lit. Vigilance is your only answer outside of the solutions suggested.

I have mold problems when using ventless propane gas wall heaters in a small rental house. The house is very tightly insulated. How can I solve this problem?

Air requirments for these units are 50 cubic feet of air for every one thousand BTU'S - if you are under this amount need to have fresh air into the room with a grill that has 1 square inch for every thousand BT'S.

I have a ventless heater, my house is covered in black soot, i also have a carbon minoxide detector it's never went off, what is it?

Your ventless appliance probably needs cleaned-the combustion burners and air passages need blown out with compressed air or vacuumed. also ensure you have supply of outside air into your house. if your house is sealed up pretty tight you need to crack a couple windows to let air in. There is no such thing as a truely "ventless"..what they mean is ..properly maintained and operated ventless heaters with proper ventilation are safe to use inside. also be aware that other chemicals in the air of your house from candles and air freshners, cleaning agents, etc will burn in the ventless heaters creating toxic pollution.

Ventless gas heater smells like kerosene

It is posible that your heater is burning fumes from paint, varnish or stain and some times carpet cleaners or other household cleaners. I work for a utility company. We get called to homes for a lighter fluid/kerosene smell quit often. Most of the time it is from the fumes burning off on a standing pilot gas oven. The odor collects in the oven and is released in the customers face when they open the oven door. This will happen with any open flame appliance when exposed to these fumes.
