Can Condo boards require that every unit have a working smoke alarm? If one apartment has a non-working alarm, and a fire starts in that unit, it can spread throughout the building endangering everyone. I realize a benefit of condominiums is that there are fewer rules and regulations vs. cooperatives, but an owner with a non-working smoke alarm is putting everyone in the building at risk. Thanks for any advice.Join the Conversation Comments (1)
