Who pays for the replacement or upgrade of an existing fire door?

If you own your front door under the terms of the lease, and it is your obligation to maintain and repair it, you will have to pay for the replacement or upgrade of the existing door. If you are not sure who owns the fire door to your property, you should read through your lease.

Often the freeholder has to follow statutory obligations. If the lease says that the door is the freeholder’s responsibility to maintain and repair, then usually the cost of replacing or upgrading doors would be paid for by the leaseholders through the service charge.
