We have a property with pocket bathroom doors. They are very old and the locking mechanisms no longer work. We have, however, installed a keyhole lock - the kind that hooks into an eyelet. Is this acceptable or will it be considered a deficiency during my next inspection?

If you remove all evidence of the original locking mechanism and replace it with a new locking mechanism that is fully functional, it will not be an issue for you. You have to ensure that you have removed any indication that the locket that originally came with the door ever existed.

I hope this helps. Post a picture once you have removed evidence of the original lock and I can tell you if what you have done would be considered acceptable.
