Please be notified that per Texas State Statute, Property Code 92.255, which became effective 7/18/2015, an apartment must follow this requirement:
Sec. 92.255. INSTALLATION AND LOCATION. (a) A landlord shall install at least one smoke alarm in each separate bedroom in a dwelling unit. In addition:
(1) if the dwelling unit is designed to use a single room for dining, living, and sleeping, the smoke alarm must be located inside the room;
(2) if multiple bedrooms are served by the same corridor, as least one smoke alarm must be installed in the corridor in the immediate vicinity of the bedrooms; and
(3) if the dwelling unit has multiple levels, at least one smoke alarm must be located on each level.
Per U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development ("HUD") Housing Quality Standards ("HQS"), a Federally Subsidized/Assisted Unit must abide to the more restrictive rule, in relation to applicable law. Please assure that each rental unit/apartment is in line with the Smoke Alarm requirements.
