Common Double Glazing front door lock problems
This sounds strange but I have come across a few UPVC and Composite front doors lately that can be opened with just the outside handle when not fully locked (fully locked = lift handle then turn key)
A front door should not be able to be opened from the outside without a key if your front door does open with just the outside handle then you may have a back/porch door style lock fitted inside your front door (fairly common) or the correct fittings have not been fitted inside your handles (also fairly common) or your locking system could be part broken.
Also I have noticed that a lot of UPVC, composite and aluminium doors spring back open when you shut them, I can also fix this problem (some people just lift the handle to hold the door shut but this will cause excess ware on the handle and locking mechanism).
