So the door has holes in it? Or the door seal not installed correctly with a gap between the door?

I don't see a location listed therefore I'll quote you the going price for a pro to install an exterior door properly with the frame included and hinges attached is $400.00, if you supply the door.

The leak could be a simple fix, either new caulking is needed or the door seals need replacing. Figure that out first before dumping more money into this.

First off I would ask if the exterior door is as per code, in other words, is it rated for an exterior door? When you apply for the permit it will state what type of door is required for the basement entrance as it's an exterior door. If it's not rated as such you would need to replace it anyway since you're applying for a permit.........after the fact.
