How a Locksmith Can Secure Your New Home
Changing the locks when moving house or moving into a new property is one of the best things you can do if you want to have maximum control over the security of your house. Secure your home with reliable, certificated and professional locksmiths. Key Change Locksmiths will not only secure a new key for you, all our keys are uniquely crafted to ensure maximum security.
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.
Changing or Upgrading your Existing Locks
After receiving the new keys to your new property, the next thing to do is to contact a reliable locksmith. You will be offered two options. You can either rekey your locks, which will involve altering the original locks to fit the new key. Or you can change all the locks. The locksmith would have to strategically remove and reinstall new locks on all your doors and windows. The time spent will be determined by the number of locks your home has.
At Key Change Locksmiths, we provide a choice of multi-locking mechanisms for windows and doors, security hinges and provide other levels of security you can choose from. We can also have your locks rekeyed and reinstalled in less than 20 minutes.
Doors and window locks repairs
Some locks may be damaged, so they may not work properly. You need to call a locksmith to make adequate repairs so you can have proper physical security in your new home. You can talk to the locksmith about anti-snapping locks and any other locks you need securing including your garage, gate or shed. At Key Change our engineers can carry a comprehensive repair on a wide variety of locks.
