Moving house can be a very stressful experience, with so many other factors to consider and arrangements to make, it’s likely to have slipped your mind that you need to change your locks. We would encourage everyone who has just moved house to change their locks as soon as possible to ensure the security of their home.
There are several reasons why arranging a lock change should be one of the first things you do when you move house, the first one being that the previous homeowners might still have their spare keys, or spare keys that they distributed amongst friends and family in case of emergencies might still be in circulation.
If you don’t have the locks changed as soon as you can, those in possession of lost or spare keys could continue to access your home. This becomes an even greater issue when you consider that the previous homeowners may not have changed the locks when they moved into the property, meaning the homeowners before them could still have keys to your house.
Another reason changing the locks as soon as you move into a new property is vital is because even if they look fine on the outside, they may in fact be in poor working condition, damaged, or no longer up to the standards necessary for most modern home insurance policies.
Locks that are damaged or are no longer functioning properly will leave your home and possessions unprotected from theft, robbery or other malicious crimes.
It’s for these main reasons that Lockworx recommends you should change all of your external door locks as soon as possible to guarantee your security. Our friendly, professional service will offer you complete peace of mind during this otherwise stressful time.
