Looking After Your Flat

  • Make sure your front door is strong. It should be as strongly built as the main outside door of the block. If it isn’t, get another one or ask your local council to do it. Fit hinge bolts which stop someone pulling the door from its hinges. And fix a special steel strip into the doorframe.
  • If your block does not have a telephone entry system, talk to the landlord or council about putting one in. This may be easier if you get together with other tenants to form a tenants’ association.
  • If you do have a telephone entry system, don’t let strangers in or hold the door open for someone who is arriving as you are leaving.
