Who owns and is responsible for the fire door?

If you are not sure who owns the fire door to your property, you should read through your lease. Your lease should describe the extent of your “demised premises” i.e. what you own. Under the terms of most leases, it is common for the leaseholder to own the flat entrance door and be responsible for its maintenance and repair.

In some cases the freeholder retains ownership of this door and/or is responsible for its maintenance and repair. If your freeholder is responsible to maintain and repair the fire door, the costs of this work will be paid for by the leaseholders through the service charge.
