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

I am due to move into a property sharing with 2 others (total of 3 occupants) in a HMO set up.
When viewing the property/room I observed that there is no lock on my soon to be bedroom door.
When I asked the landlord if he could fit a lock he advised that I would need to pay for it to be installed and pay him again to remove it when I leave.
Is this correct?
As a tenant renting the room on an individual basis with my own tenancy agreement, shouldn’t it be an expection that the landlord installs locks on all the room doors at no cost to the tenant.
Your advice would be much appreciated
Thank you in advance
