The U.S. Fire Administration records 86 percent of campus-related fire fatalities since 2000 occurred in off-campus housing. Common factors in these fires are: lack of automatic fire sprinklers; missing or disabled smoke alarms; careless disposal of smoking materials; impaired judgment from alcohol consumption; and fires originating on upholstered furniture. Fires are not the only perils that may raise liability concerns: filthy units; pest infestations; electrical problems; illegal bedrooms in basement or attic spaces; inadequate ingress/egress; broken locks; blocked exits; and heating and plumbing issues are all common complaints. Another, rampant overcrowding, is commonplace in the nation’s college neighborhoods.
