Older or period doors often have catches rather than standard handles or locks, but these can be easily replaced by a carpenter, joiner or handyman. Sourcing replacement handles may be the most difficult part of the job, as well as the most expensive part. Your tradesman will be more than happy to fit replacement catches that you have found, making any adjustments to your door or the fittings as necessary.
If the screw holes vary from the current ones then new holes may have to be drilled before fitting the new catches. The tradesman will also fill any unused old screw holes or strengthen current screw holes if needed.
