You don't typically see independent isolation valves on multi-unit fire suppression systems. That in itself would be a major concern to me.
Had a similar situation happen here 3 years ago. Contractor wint'd a townhome w/sprinklers (could not isolate them), the broker chose to NOT have the heat on...and yep they froze in ALL 12 units. Needless to say that was a mess for the lawyers to figure out. In the end I think the broker took the brunt of the responsibility.
