Is my porch private or communal?

I’m having a disagreement with my housing association landlord regarding the enclosed porch at the front of our flat. 

I know the stairwells are communal, and the flats opposite share a porch landing, however ours is completely enclosed and has a door fitted. Is this enough to define it as private under the law?

Apologies- I was searching the forum for similar topics and one came up, so I just added a question.

I should also have elaborated - the dispute is about who is responsible for Fire Safety Assessments and maintenance. 

Our tenancy stipulates the HA is responsible for all communal areas, but doesn’t explicitly state the porch is communal. We’re arguing it’s not as it’s a private and therefore we have responsibility for it. They’re arguing the reverse.
