Landlords Must Follows All Fire Codes

Once a fire has happened, it’s too late to ensure that the place where you live follows state, city, and other regulations regarding safety for tenants. It is essential to ensure that your landlord acts responsibly. Some standard safety precautions include:

  • Reviewing all electrical wiring in the property to confirm it is in good condition and installed safely
  • Installing the necessary fire alarms on the property and confirms that they are all working as they should.
  • Providing tenants with clearly marked, sturdy fire escapes
  • Installing fireproof entry doors
  • Ensuring that all fire extinguishers are routinely serviced and tenants know their location.
  • Maintaining clear escape routes and marks them so that tenants know which one is the nearest one for them to use

When landlords neglect these responsibilities, the results can be life-threatening for the tenants. Unfortunately, these careless acts tend to be more common than anyone might imagine.

Filing a Negligence Lawsuits Against Your Landlord

When fire precautions are inadequate or do not exist, and a fire occurs, you may be able to file a lawsuit against your landlord. You might be feeling pressured by your landlord not to pursue your claim, citing specific clauses in the lease agreement you signed that prevent you from doing so. If this is your case, talk to your burn lawyer and go over the documentation. It is important to be clear on your rights and understand whether your landlord is trying to take advantage of you.

If your Goldstein & Goldstein burn injury lawyer discovers that your lease contract contains language about waiving your right to a jury trial, we can make a determination as to whether it’s a legally valid and binding contract. If it turns out it isn’t, we can file a lawsuit or negotiate with your landlord’s representative.
