I have a three car garage with one door to the outside. my landlord has the third car sectioned off with plywood leaving no access.Hazard?

I don't know what you mean by 'no access' ? No access to the sectioned off area .. or no access because there is a sectioned off storage area that blocks entry/exit garage door?

If you can't pull a car into the garage than I'm not sure where the 'hazard' would stem from. It's just a storage area in that case.

You mean there are no doors to drive your car in through? I don't think there has to be a separate side door. It would depend upon local building codes.

I mean that I have access in and out through gage door but no access to third car where Side door is. He put up a wall between third car and two car made out of plywood. if garage doors fail or spring breaks we wont be able to get out with out going throught he house. so if we lock ourselves out on an accident and cant get in the house from garage and cant open garage, wouldnt that be a hazard?

If there are no fire sources near the car with plywood, then it is not considered hazardous. However, if you have a problem with the car being there or if you think it might be risky, then you can request your landlord to get rid of the plywood or maybe park the car in a less risky way for safety purposes.

No hazard exist here just a heck of an inconvenience. Prepare for lock out ahead of time by hiding a key or better yet--do what we did-- we installed a push button combo lock. If locked inside the garage we just push out combination +*+* and the door opens. Purchased at Home Depot.
