I,ve been exposed to the term “DEMISING WALL” for almost 30 years.

I understand. Terms are used all the time. Commercial Real Estate people use it all the time.
But it is not a code term.

Maniac,
That”s the term that was used up until the late 80”s, early 90”s, to specify the tenant separation wall. I, those who worked for me, those for whom I worked, and all the inspectors that inspected, used the term. It usually terminated at floor or roof structure, though not always rocked to roof.

In the IBC Demising walls are not really used anymore. You have fire walls, fire barriers, fire partitions etc. In the old code “demising walls” seperated different tenants. I do not know about California though.

DEMISING WALL should throw you, in California, since it is not a California Building Code term.

In the California Building Code, you have Occupancy seperation walls, Area seperation walls and Tenant seperation walls, And you have rated corridor walls.

This might help with the corridors:
