Hi, I have purchased an apartment in a development by Fortis Group and is now being managed by Xenia Estates. Both main entrance doors to the building don’t have an automatic closing mechanism installed, and the door frames are jammed.
This means anyone can gain unauthorised access to the building 24/7. This has been the case from the very beginning due to bad workmanship, going back to January 2021, and numerous complaints and phonecalls have taken place to report this.
Most times no one calls back to address the concerns, and it’s now July. Apparently, Xenia Estates are now looking at quotes for repairs, even though they issued a letter back in March, advising that they’re instructing repairs.
I’d like to know if the lack of building security (doors), is an issue for the building insurance cover/provider or fire safety, and what action can I take as a leaseholder?
