Can I be forced to upgrade or replace my front door if it is the door that was there when I purchased the flat?
Quiz - how well do you understand your lease?
Understand the key things you should know about your lease. If you are a purchaser, this can help make sure your solicitor has covered all of these points and explained them clearly to you.
If you own your door under the terms of the lease and the freeholder considers that it is not properly compliant to current fire safety standards, perhaps after carrying out a fire risk assessment, the terms of the lease may be enough to entitle them to require you to bring your door up to standard.
