    moved into new flat, all was ok but when I tried to shut the bedroom door.. oh there no door. My fault for not seeing it on the viewing but Ive mever seen a place without doors

    anyway I asked the agent if im allowed doors and they said yeh but must pay for it ourself, doesnt the landlord have to due to a fire hazard?

    I'm no expert; but I would have thought it was down to the landlord. My contract, for example, states that doors must be replaced by the housing association. But I've got to replace the minor things, like broken toilet seats and lights.

    What does your tenancy say?

    I'd imagine that if you chose to rent it like that they can do what they like. It's not unusual to find very open plan places so I doubt there would be a legal requirement for doors.
Do you like carrot cake?
