New electrical checks and safety standards for Landlords8:59 AM, 15th January 2020

I have had a letter from the local Council asking me for proof that the front door to my flat is a FD30S door. This means is it a fire door that is self closing and able to be 30-minute fire resistance.
I do not know if the door is FD30S compliant as it is the door that was fitted to the property when it was built in the 1960’s under the then building regs.
The property is an ex local Council property that I lived in before I purchased it and later moved out and started to then rent it out. There are six flats in the block all the other flats had their doors replaced by the Council several years ago, mine was not as I lived there then and did not want to pay the Council £2000+ to replace it.
I have not done any significant improvements apart from replacing the boiler and windows. Any help would be appreciated.
