Undo the allen screw on the handle and pull it off. Or you could break the rest of the door from around it What happened here?

Normally if you take that pin out it will just pull apart. Edit Or maybe it's an Allen screw. Sometimes it's just a pin though

Damage

If you are renting the property, the repair is the landlord's responsibility.

An Allen screw is a screw with a recessed, hexagonal head. Use an appropriate sized Allen wrench to remove the screw. Allen wrench may be called a hex key.
