we are having a similar issue in a larger apartment building here, 3 stories, 42 units. at some point the latching hardware was removed from the doors, (it is evident it was there at one point) previous inspections from other prevention officers had missed the lack of hardware and i am attempting to have the owner either install approved hardware or replace the doors as required. he is arguing that they are existing, and that they have been like that for a long time. our next step i believe was going to write an order under 9.5.2.8(1) and using the requirements of 2.7.2.1.
