Landlord v. Tenant: January 2016
Fire Department Violations: Landlord Proves Sprinkler System Flow Test Was Timely
The Fire Department issued a violation notice to landlord for failing to arrange for a performance flow test of the building’s residential sprinkler system in the presence of a Fire Department representative. Landlord claimed that the sprinkler system had been tested by the violation date. The Fire Department noted that the building had two sprinkler system accounts and therefore must have two sprinkler systems. Landlord claimed that there was only one sprinkler system.
