Why Change the lock on your new home?

Moving boxes, getting the kids settled into their new home, and tying loose ends with your realtor can be undoubtedly stressful. So it’s no wonder we often forget to change the locks. Unless you have all the keys to the house, which is unlikely to happen, you’ll be putting yourself and your family in unnecessary danger. Regardless of whether the previous house owners shared their keys with others or not, you sure don’t want unknown guests having a spare key to your house. For this reason, you need to change the locks. 

Some of the locks may be broken or not working properly when you move in. You may not even have access to all the doors and windows locks. As a result, it will be difficult for you to exit through all necessary doors and windows in an emergency. 

Most people are unaware that their doors and window locks must meet the British Standard 3621, which is now the stipulation of most insurance policies. Failure to meet these standards could render your insurance policy invalid and your claims can be rejected. You may have to upgrade the locks of your new home when you move in to avoid issues with your insurer.
