I have two self contained apts with a communal hall between them. One front door between this hall and the outside and is used by both flats. Individual flat door to both apartments are off this common hall. One tenant with a two year old yesterday went to the main door in the common hall the to outside space, for the postman and inadvertently the two year old who was in the apt shut the apt door, locking my tenant out. I think she turned the lock. The tenant had not got her keys. She had her phone tho, called me and I was able to let her in quite quickly. I received a text this morning saying that the turn lock I had on the door was dangerous and should be changed. I was under the impression this was the advised lock for front doors. If it’s wrong could u advise what the correct lock is please. Thank you.
