Fire escape stairs as main entry?


Recommended Posts


I have a neighbor who chooses to use the outdoor fire escape stairs as a main entrance instead of using the front door. My issue with this is that the stairs run directly past my window invading my privacy. Can this person legally use these stairs as a main point of entry to their apartment when having access to a main entrance in the building?

It may be unusual, but there is no regulation which says he/she cannot. I believe most people do use their front door and not the fire escape because exit is easy but entry is difficult for security reasons.

Thank you for your reply.

The entry back into the building is easy as the door is left open all the time by this person. Since no regulations exist, would you suggest I take this matter to the police, given all the noise at night when this person uses these stairs?
