Forum Title: interior door alignment - help!
The carpenter installed a new door into an existing frame (which may not be square) - he mortised for the 3 hinges, on the door, by hand (no jig). The door strikes the stop at the bottom on the latch side but is out from the stop at the top (latch side). I assume that the door hinges need adjustment/relocation? Any help would be appreciated ... thnx

I am certain that the proper latch exists. Start with the door manufacturer. Since it is a new door, the brand name should be on the door, the packaging, or your receipt. You can then contact them for more info. Also, there are many Internet sites which sell latches and one or more should have what you need. You could check with local locksmith shops, as many do work on door latches and may well have your solution.

You paid a carpenter to do this, make him come back out and get it right

Well....he did say carpenter.....I'm guessing it was someone who owned a hammer, saw, and pickup truck. I'm still not sure if we are talking about not contacting the stop (like a warped door) or too far in the opening so it can't reach the stop (racked frame kinda thing).
