Fit the Correct Locks

This may seem obvious, but it is important you have the correct type of lock fitted. Your locks should adhere to British Standards. In some instances, insurance companies may insist that you have BSI locks fitted before they consider insuring you.

BSI locks are stronger, more robust and meet security standards. A common burglar trick is cylinder snapping, which works on poor quality euro cylinders. Locks with anti-snap cylinders prevent this as they have a break line that snaps in a specific place. This protects the internal mechanism which makes it harder to gain access to your property.

Secure Windows

Locks should be fitted on all windows. Especially ground floor windows, as these are the most vulnerable. You should prioritise your window security the same way as you do with your doors.

Look for any that are BSI standard, so you have the best level of protection.

Regularly Update Your Locks

Changing your locks each time you change tenants can be expensive. However, it will guarantee complete peace of mind that strangers will have access to your property after a new tenancy.

If someone enters your property without forced entry, it could possibly invalidate your insurance.

Assign an Emergency Locksmith

A locksmith is an invaluable asset to any landlord. If you or your tenant can’t get into the property due to breakage or malfunction, it is handy to have a number to call.

You should also ensure that the locksmith is reputable.
