MA Stair Landing Requirements???


Hi,
I have a straight stairway to my basement with a door that swings away from the stairs. I believe that for this condition there is NO requirement to have a landing at the top of the stairs. Am I correct??
Thanks,

As you go thru a door you generally need a 3' landing on the other side
Is this pre-existing ?
Pics ?

The door and stairs currently exist with NO landing. My impression was that a landing was NOT required if the door opened away from the stairs.
