    "Ideall you would look at how out of align the lock is and if you could unscrew depending on the lock type and realign it yourself all well and good if not a carpenter or locksmith will sort it"

    "I would first check that the hinges are not loose as the door could have dropped. Secondly is the lock loose. Thirdly does the catch work fine when the door is open. Then I would check the keep"
