Moving to a new home?
Do you know how many keys are out there for your new home? It’s impossible to know. It could be a neighbour, babysitter, gardener, tradesman, dog walker, previous homeowners’ partner or just about anyone. When you move into a new home it’s prudent to change the locks or set the existing locks to a new key.
We’ve also found through experience that housing developers have had front door locks master keyed so that one key will open every front door in a new housing development. This gives the site contractors easy access to every house but is a potential security nightmare. By changing your locks, you can sleep secure knowing you are safe from unwanted intruders accessing to your new home.
