Fire Sprinkler System Disclosure in Residential Leases

Connecticut residential landlords, take notice:

As of October 1, 2015, Connecticut law (Section 57 of bill 1502) requires that residential landlords include a notice in a rental agreement, as to the existence or nonexistence of an operative fire sprinkler system. Further, if there is an operative fire sprinkler system in the dwelling unit, the rental agreement “shall provide further notice as to the last date of maintenance and inspection…” The notices “shall be printed in not less than twelve-point boldface type of uniform font.”
