Dear Mister Condo,
Is it a state law to that there must be a fire wall between units of a condo complex that consists of only 2 units?
Mister Condo replies:
J.J., while there aren’t any state laws that I am aware of, I suspect you will find your answer within the local building codes of your town or city. I asked Timothy Wentzell, PE and Owner of Connecticut Property Engineering for his opinion on the matter. Here is what Tim had to day:
“There does need to be a firewall between two units however the type and method of construction depends on when it was built. That being said if any major repairs are being done to this area it would need to be done to current codes.”
