Why Change the Locks?
Unless you knew and trusted the previous tenants, you won’t know how many sets of keys have previously been cut for your property. You’ve invested lots of money into your home, it’s not worth risking someone else having access to it.
By not changing your locks and making sure all points of access are secure, you may be putting your household in danger.
It Can Invalidate Insurance
If you were to be burgled and have possessions damaged or stolen, your insurance claim may be void. The majority of insurance companies seek evidence of forced entry before a claim is paid out. If you don’t change the locks, it means someone has entered the property with an old key, which isn’t technically forced entry.
Insurance companies will see this and decide that you haven’t done enough to secure your home to prevent a burglary. To add to this, your locks must conform to British Standard.
