Should I expect a payment for the option rights to my book?

I've had a book published and been approached by a film producer wanting to option the film rights to the book. He's sent a draft agreement but there is no fee involved. When I questioned this the response was that this was standard practice for a book that is 'not a known branded property'. I gotta be honest me and my book are about as unknown as its possible to be but should I still expect some sort of fee for this.

Furnace inspection regulations, New York State?

Are there any laws or regulations requiring a landlord to make periodic inspections of the furnace (oil burning) in a single family house in New York State, Suffolk County, Long Island? It seems to fall under a generic 'Duty of Care' but I'm not sure if there is anything that compels an inspection before the thing blows up or expels toxic gas.
