When To Do a Lock Change

Locksmith Boise lock change
We know how stressful it can be moving in to a new place. Normally when you move, there is a long list of things that need to be done and many others to keep in mind. One of the things that people tend to forget is dealing with the currently installed locks in the property. It doesn't matter if you are the home owner or just a new tenant moving in, changing the current lock is an important move and essential for your security and peace of mind.

Many people do not realize, but when moving into a new place, there is no tell of how many copies of keys the previous residents of the property made. Even though as part of the sale agreement all keys are to be submitted, there is no way to tell how many keys are actually still in the possession of the current owner and hoe many of them he lend to other people allowing access to the property such as relatives, service providers and more. This can be a serious safety and security risk.

It has been researched and found that many residential property break-ins were done by people who were familiar or was in contact with the previous property owner. Because of that, it is important to deal with the property locks and take the time to change the locks before fully completing the move. In addition, if not already equipped, it is recommended to add a deadbolt lock to all doors surrounding the place for extra security.

The first doors to be concentrated on when changing the locks are the ones surrounding the property such as front and back door or any side doors such as basement entrance. These are really important to deal with first as they are considered to be the main points of entry into the place and the first ones an intruder will attempt to go through in case of a break-in attempt. Changing the locks will ensure your peace of mind of not having to worry about keys that are floating around and give you the security that you need for your new home.
