Landlord Fined $26,000 for Not Having Proper Fire Alarm System
LVT Number: #30664
DOB issued five violation notices to landlord based on failure to install a code-compliant fire alarm system in an apartment building used for transient occupancy. DOB also sought aggravated penalties because this was a recurring condition. DOB's inspector testified that he spoke with two guests renting one apartment for a four-day stay. The ALJ ruled for DOB and fined landlord $26,000 for the combined violations.
