Landlord Didn't Test Fire Protection System
LVT Number: #24736
The Fire Department issued two violation notices to landlord, one for failing to produce records for a quarterly cleaning of the exhaust system and another for failing to conduct a semiannual inspection and testing of the building's fire protection system. Landlord's representative admitted the violations on an adjourned hearing date and claimed that landlord was going to do the work. The ALJ fined landlord $1,300. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord claimed that a medical emergency kept him from personally attending the ALJ hearing.
