Sprinkler Disclosure Law Goes into Effect 12/3/14

We have been reminded by our General Counsel, Marc Luxemburg, that pursuant to New York State Real property Law, Article 7 Section 231-a and effective December 3, 2014, all residential leases must contain a notice in bold face type as to the existence or non-existence of a Sprinkler System in the Leased Premises.

For most of us, the Leased Premises are the apartment which is the subject of the proprietary lease. If there is no sprinkler system in the apartment, this Sprinkler Disclosure Notice may be used. If there is a sprinkler system in the apartment, this must be disclosed in the notice and the notice must state the last date of maintenance and inspection.

The notice must be inserted into and made part of every proprietary lease, including any amendments that may be made in the future.

If you have questions, please consult your building’s attorney or you may contact Mr. Luxemburg at Gallet, Dreyer & Berkey, LLP at 212 935-3131 or mjl@gdblaw.com
