swinging doors

Can anyone tell me if there is anything you can do about doors that swing open all the time? - my house is full of them.

Simply Build It

If you have tried exorcism, kicking the cat, closing the windows and removing any other extraneous causes you are going to have to rehang the doors!

Trust me, a vertically hung door won't swing open on it's own.

You haven't got subsidence and whole house is leaning have you?

I suspect you either have drafts, or builder who hung the doors after one too many at lunchtime

thanks for your advice, there is no subsidence and we have perfomed the exorcism ourselves to no avail, - so the last suggestion is prhaps the most likely one.
