    Sprinkler system mandated by state, who's responsible HOA or owner?

    stephen polinsky on Sat, Aug 27, 2011 @ 09:03 AM


    We live in a three unit building in which State/Municipal Law mandates alarm and sprinkler systems. Ours is the only building in the development since the developer didn't build additional 3 units after the law was passed and previous buildings were grandfathered. The systems were in place when the present owners purchased their units. In fact, none of us were advised as to the status of the fire protection and the board at the time was also unaware of their existence Now that we are aware the question is who is responsible for maintenance, inspections, upgrades and monitoring..the association or the unit owners or both? It is the contention of the individual owners that the association is responsible since it will be in place long after the owners have relocated and due to the fact that it is mandated by law.
