Slopes and retaining walls in an apartment building are parts vulnerable to be damaged if not be maintained properly.
If a slope or retaining wall is not maintained, it will deteriorate and landslide may occur. This could result in injury to persons or damage to your property.
- Private owners are responsible for slopes and retaining walls within their private lots. Private owners may also be liable under specific lease conditions for the maintenance of slopes and retaining walls adjoining their lot.
- Owners should carefully examine the lease documents to ascertain the extent of the land they are required to maintain. If you are in doubt, you may wish to seek advice from a lawyer.
- Any slope or retaining wall for which an owner is responsible shall be maintained in a state of good condition in accordance with Construction Department's standards.
