Depends upon what codes and regulations have been adopted by the local jurisdiction, and whether the landlord's property is subject to any "grandfather" provisions (meaning they are exempt from later code updates).

There are certain things that typically cannot be grandfathered, such as the need for smoke detectors. Your local fire inspector can answer your questions.
