Default Security permissions of file


I'm trying to check a file for its security permissions to determine if it is writeable or not.
The code looks like that:
Function IsFileWritePermission(ByVal sFileName As String) As Boolean
            Dim fp As FileIOPermission
            fp = New FileIOPermission(FileIOPermissionAccess.Write, sFileName)


            Return True
        Catch ex As Security.SecurityException
            Return False
        Catch ex As Exception
            Return False
        End Try
    End Function
The file i'm testing has a Deny Write permission and the function still return true. If I try to open the file to write, it raises an error exception for write permission.
