Added by: SMR Locksmiths Ltd, on: 30th August 2021

When you move into a new property, can you be entirely sure that you’re the only one who can access it? As soon as you buy a new house or apartment, or sign a tenancy agreement, you should think about security to avoid intrusion or burglary.

 

Why you should change your locks.

When you buy a property, you may wonder how many people might have key duplicates which will give them access to your abode. Of course it should never happen, but how can you be sure? In order to have a peace of mind, get in touch with a professional local locksmith who will change your locks and check the security standards in your new home.

If you rent a property from a private landlord or from an agency, the risk gets even higher, because all previous tenants of your apartment may have their copies of your key, which means that there is a lot of people likely to enter your premises without permission. In order to avoid any unwanted intrusions, you need to have a professional locksmith over to change your locks. Remember to talk it through with your landlord or the real estate agency.

Better safe than sorry

As many as 1 in 100 British homes falls victim to burglary every year, according to data from the 2020 Office for National Statistics Crime Survey.

By getting in touch with a locksmith for changing your locks, you not only make sure that you’ll avoid unwanted guests. You will also invest in your overall security.

Another top priority for every new home owner or tenant is insurance. If you happen to have a break in and you won’t be able to prove that it has been a forced entry and that you had taken all security measures possible, you are not going to get any compensation. You will lose the stolen items, time, money and the peace of mind.
