San Francisco building code


Do adjoining apartment buildings have to have a fire wall? I can't find that info anywhere. I ask because my apt is not that we'll separated from the apt in the next building. I can even feel the wall move when someone hits or leans on it. Concerned about fire hazard as those neighbors are smokers.

Buildings. But my apt and the adjoining building's apt share walls. They seem too thin to offer any sound and fire protection. Two separate landlords involved. Both are keeping secret the contents of the walls.

call the building department and ask any questions you have of them .... they are the experts in this matter
