  1. Hi, My insurance wants locks conforming to BS3621 or a 3 bolt multi point locking system. From what I understand this means a key lock on both sides of a front/back door lock. However, from a fire safety perspective a turning knob to lock from the inside is safer. I feel like I have to go with the insurance requirements but I can't help but feel my hand is being forced at the expensive of safety. Has anyone else managed to square this circle? With thanks S

  3. Hi All, I am wondering if anyone knows of any regulations for front door locks on a standard BTL flat? I am currently getting quotes for composite doors to replace an ageing wooden door. (FYI They seem to be averaging between £850-£1050 supplied and fitted) Apologies that I don't know the term for these types of locks so I will explain. The First lock type works so that when you close the door, you are then unable to move the outside handle and the door is 'locked' from the outside (much like a night latch). You would then need to lift the handle and lock the door with the key for the full deadbolt and hinge operation. The Second lock type doesn't lock at all when you close the door and you are still able to open the door with the handle from the outside. To lock the door you would need to lift the handle and lock the door with the key to enable the full deadbolt and hinge operation. I would rather have the second lock type fitted, so that if a tenant was to close the door by accident or it was to blow shut as they are taking the bins out, they wouldn't have to call me to let them back in - It only crossed my mind as I remember reading something about HMO's requiring thumb-turn locks on the inside, but it did get me thinking that there could possibly be a legal requirement for the First lock type? Additionally, if anyone has any recommendations on a person/company that fits composite doors in (South) London area or online company, I would be grateful for the info Thanks James
