YES, according to the State Law, the Owner has ultimate responsibility for compliance with TAS. You can assign responsibility to others to make sure the correct process is followed.

It also depends on who is responsible for the build out – the Landlord or Tenant.

  • Landlord: make sure the construction documents are put through the TAS procedure.
  • Tenant: Recommend you contact your attorney to obtain additional language to include in your lease to deflect as much liability as possible to the Tenant for compliance.
