How to Handle Residents Who Obstruct Fire Exits and Jeopardize Tax Credits
As a site owner or manager, you must check the common areas of your tax credit site regularly for safety hazards. If you find problems, you must immediately correct them, or risk legal liability for any potential injuries to residents, their guests, or visitors to the site. You may encounter items such as bicycles, brooms, buckets, and large plants on fire escapes or other means of egress in an emergency. Items may block public hallways, stairwells, and other common areas with such items as old furniture or baby carriages.
