    I am having issue with the UPVC door not fully closed upon closing the door.

    What I mean is that when closing the door, I could touch the door by my finger tip and it opens meaning that it is not fully closed in position when closed.

    I have to lift the handle up to get the door fully closed when in place..

    Is this a common issue? Do I need to adjust the hinges?

    Possibly the latch/keep first rather than the hinges if I've understood you correctly.

    Edit: Lifting the handle engages the espagnolette which pulls the door in against the frame and locks the shoot bolts

    Yeah.. Latch on frame needs adjusting. Probably come lose and needs putting in correct place and tighten up. Screws are an odd size if one or both missing

    If the door is a bit draughty, then I assume would need to adjust on the door not the frame? Just like in the YouTube video below?

    Adjusted the latch keep and hinges. Door now latching fully.

    Cheers guys.
