My tenant raised this issue and wanted to install a double cylinder lock where you need a key to unlock both from inside and out. That seems reasonable. But when I thought about it further, I had concerns about safety and legality. Grant brought an action for damages for bodily injury resulting from burns and lacerations he had received when he left the windshield of his rented apartment, which caught fire. Grant sued Roger Thornton and John Casey Trust No. 3645 as owners and owners of the rental apartment where the fire occurred. The complaint alleged that Appellees created a dangerous state at the site by negligently maintaining the front door, which contained a double-cylinder latch that required a key to exit from the interior, in violation of Manatee County`s building and fire safety regulations. The response acknowledged ownership of the premises, but challenged the main allegations in the complaint and raised several positive objections, including comparative negligence, compensation with a secondary source, and a counterclaim for property damage to the plaintiff who caused the fire. The required exit doors must be capable of being operated from the inside without the use of a key, tools, knowledge or special effort.
Manually operated rinse bolts or surface screws are prohibited. All hardware must act directly and must not require more than one operation. Double-cylinder locks that require a key for actuation on both sides are prohibited on the required exit doors, unless the locking device is equipped with a key that cannot be removed if the door is locked from the inside. So I thought about converting the single-cylinder latch into a double-cylinder latch to prevent the child from opening the door. However, in doing so, I am concerned that this will constitute a violation of Philadelphia fire safety and I would very much like to avoid any confrontation and/or fines that may result. What does BP think about double-cylinder locks on exit doors? I`m also curious about the legality in Denver, Colorado. I lived in Philadelphia and saw many other apartments with double cylinder locks. Certainly, I have also seen a lot of apartments that do not comply with the code, so I do not know for sure if that answers your question. (b) In the absence of applicable construction, housing or health regulations, maintain roofs, windows, mosquito nets, doors, floors, steps, porches, exterior walls, foundations and all other structural elements in good condition and capable of withstanding normal forces and loads, as well as piping under reasonable operating conditions. However, the landlord is not required to maintain a mobile home or other structure owned by the tenant. Houzz ÑÑÑ: 64 ÐºÐ².

Casey, whose patrons were Thornton and his wife. In general, Thornton does not maintain the interior of the premises unless there is a complaint from the tenant. The duplex was built around 1971, and Thornton had no way of knowing if the premises had been built in accordance with local regulations and standards, as he had never reviewed manatee County`s building or fire safety regulations. He also stated that the duplex unit had never been cited for violation of the Code or regulations. I know you can access building codes online on the L&I website. It may take a little digging to find what you`re looking for, but it`s probably there.
Here, Thornton not only knew the locking system, but also provided the keys for its use. His defense is ignorance of district law and order that relate to such locking systems. He explained that he had never checked the building codes and that he simply had no knowledge of the inadequacy.

However, the Trial Court noted that the tenants had not informed the appellants of the dangerous situation. See Mansur v.
Eubanks, 401 So.2d 1328 (Fla.1981). The trial judge also relied on Fitzgerald v. Cestari, 569 So.2d 1258 (Fla.1990), which was a sliding glass door that was not made of safety glass, as required by the building regulations. The local court relieved the landlord of liability for the harm suffered by the tenant because the composition of the glass was not easily recognizable by an appropriate inspection by the landlord.
