ADT Lawsuit Alleges Failure to Obtain Alarm Permits

Audet & Partners, LLP is investigating potential ADT lawsuit claims on behalf of California property owners who have purchased alarm systems through ADT Security Services, Inc. (“ADT”).  Under California law commonly known as the “Alarm Company Act,” every agreement for monitoring, servicing and installing an alarm system exceeding $250 must disclose to buyers any potential alarm permit fees that may be required in local jurisdictions.

Purchasers of ADT systems are alleging that ADT’s failure to either pay required permit fees, or inform customers of their obligation to do so, has resulted in substantial fines and penalties for which the property owner is ultimately held responsible.  Under California law, failure to secure alarm permits may result in a misdemeanor conviction punishable by a fine of up to $1,000, a year in jail, or both a fine and imprisonment.

If you have purchased an alarm system from ADT within the State of California and were either: (a) not informed of your city’s alarm permit requirement and the required permit was not obtained by ADT; or (b) subject to a bill for a false alarm that, due to the lack of the necessary alarm permit, was more costly than the bill would have been had the permit been obtained, you are urged to contact us immediately for a free case evaluation either by completing and submitting our confidential inquiry form on the right side of this page, or by calling us at (800) 965-1461.
