I have received a notice from Newham (London) council's 'Client Relations'. The notice requies to install a fire door (BS 476, part 22) to my rented flat. The maisonnete flat is situated on the ground floor (4 floors in the block) with direct access to the front garden and public road.

The superior landlord (ie the council) installed the existing door about 10 years ago (charging me for it)as part of a larger renovation project to the block.

My questions:

1)Is it a legal requirement to have a fire door to the entrance of a flat (ground floor) in a purpose-built block?

2) If it is a legal requirement and the council charged me for a fitting the entrance door which has subsequently failed the fire inspection - whose responsibility it is to remedy the situation?

Fellow members! May I please have your advice and input?
