Owner's responsibilities

Owner's responsibilities

Owner's responsibilities

Good Day, All!
I am inquiring about Owner's responsibility pre lease. As example: If an owner has a building with an ordinary hazard 2 system installed and leases a CRU in that building to a Tire Shop storing tires in the back to 20'-0" is it not the owner's responsibilty to ensure the system is verified and upgraded to accommodate the new tenant.
I know on new construction NFPA 13, 2013 section 4.3 covers this and a.4.3 somewhat addresses tenant improvements BUT is there a section or NFPA clause that is more direct to this situation?

RE: Owner's responsibilities

NFPA 25 4.1.6 looks to be what I'm looking for... thanks to myself ! LOL!

RE: Owner's responsibilities

Depends on how the lease reads.

Most I have heard about the new business is causing the problem,,,

So the new business pays for the upgrade, but the owner gets to keep improvements.
