When To Do a Lock Change
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.
