Asked by Dylan, San Francisco, CA • Sat Dec 22, 2012
I rent a two bedroom in San Francisco. The apartment building I live in has 15 units and was constructed in the 1950s.
The unit contains a fireplace which was obviously a selling point. At the end of last winter I noticed that the apartment was filling up with smoke when I used the fireplace. I'd like to use it again this season but cleaning it is about $180. Who is responsible for paying for this?
I had assumed the landlord because if the place catches fire due to lack of maintenance, it's their building that goes up. However the Internet is ambiguous about this. Anyone?
