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? or apartment units?

A better description is needed.

Call the code enforcement office f the info is not available on line.

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.
