Did you know... March 17, 2014


Although installation of smoke detection devices is the responsibility of the landlord, maintenance, including the replacement of batteries, is the responsibility of the tenant.  The courts can fine tenants up to $200 for violation of this requirement.  This typically occurs when the tenant removes the smoke alarm or battery. Why would someone do that? And let me ask you this, When you changed your clocks recently did you also change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detection devices? Why not?
