Landlord Didn't Properly Maintain and Test Sprinkler System

August 9, 2013
LVT Number: #24993

The Fire Department issued a violation notice to landlord after finding that there was no certificate of fitness (CF) holder for maintaining the sprinkler system at landlord's building, and no records showing that the sprinkler system was inspected, tested, and maintained in compliance with Fire Department regulations. Landlord claimed that he was unaware of these requirements for the sprinkler system because no one had asked for these records in over 30 years. He also said he was in the process of correcting the violation, having taken the exam for CF holder.
