    Tenant wants to remove front door!

    Just had call from newish tenant, he asked if I was prepared to remove front door in the case that his new 3 seater sofa will not fit through.
    I immediately said no, as I had just fitted it during recent refurb. Was I being harsh? Should I consider it? Any opinions?

    Is this wood or PVC. For wood, I believe you can remove the hinge pin without removing the hinges.

      It's a Composite door in a PVC frame. I think I panicked when he asked, thinking he meant me to remove the frame, but as you say there may be a way to remove hinge pins leaving hinge body in place. I suppose the other way is just to remove the door handles inside & out to allow door closer to internal wall which is perpendicular to door.

        Tenant bears the cost for a professional to do it that you arrange, otherwise its a no. It was professionally fitted in the first place and even though I am a reasonably handy person there is no way I would attempt that.

          Tell only if the door installers you used do the work. At their expense. And when they move out. You require their agreement in writing.
