Just moved house? Do you need your locks changed?
If you have just moved in to a new property, we (and as do most insurance companies) strongly advise that you change all external door locks.
If you are renting then we advise that you ask your landlord to arrange for this to be done for you.
You will never know who else could have a key to your new home, from contractors and carers to sales reps, to relations or friends of the former owners, who knows?
And gaining access to a property with the keys is the easiest, quickest and quietest way, nobody will pay any attention to someone entering your property with a key.
And remember, although you may have received all the original keys back, there is always the possibility that someone may have a cut copy.
So please be aware. This is an issue we come across all the time.
And please also check your insurance policy documents, (check the small print) as most insurance companies will not cover you in the event of a burglary if, 1. someone has gained entry with a key. 2. If your locks are not to British standard or even if you have not changed the locks after moving in.
If you have any concerns at all regarding this or, would like to book a free no obligation security check then please feel free to call us anytime on 01243 717 470.
