Sorry for the delay. I was finishing assisting another customer.
Baltimore requires landlords to have a Rental Housing License. The questions that you have about carbon monoxide detectors and other issues can be found at the website below. It is very informational, as it indicates what the landlord must do in order to gain a Housing License.http://www.baltimorecountymd.gov/agencies/permits/rentalregistration/index.html
The issue of smoke detectors can be found in the same website, but at the link below.http://www.baltimorecountymd.gov/Agencies/permits/rentalregistration/rentalfaq.html#Q9
If you navigate the first link that I provided, you should be able to find MORE information than even you asked for.
With respect to the toilets, the landlord must make sure that there are properly installed and working toilet seats for each toilet at the time of the move in.
If a tenant is currently living in a home/apartment and there is a dispute, if it is unresolved, the tenant may file an action in the district court
. Below is a link to the issues regarding landlord/tenant matters and what the cause of action may be, as well as a resolution.http://www.courts.state.md.us/district/forms/civil/dccv082tbr.html#health
Also, below is a link to a list of questions that you may want to ask (and it would be helpful to you to write the questions down and the tenant and landlord initial each question if it is ok, or if there is a problem, who and when the problem will be repaired. That should also be initialed by the parties.http://www.peoples-law.org/node/539
