Adjusting door as latch doesn't close anymore

Postby Corbula » Tue Jan 18, 2022 11:49 pm

Firstly, sorry if this is the wrong place, I'm new here. I've got a new build house and one of the internal doors no longer stays closed as the latch doesn't reach the socket.

It use to albeit you had to push quite hard to do it but now it no longer closes at all. The part in the door tht retracts when you push on the handle is actually too low to fit in the socket in the frame.

I've attached a picture of the hinges on the door. Does anyone now how I can adjust the door to raise it so it fits again?
