Moving home is one of the most challenging and stressful situations we are ever likely to experience. With so much to organise and remember, it’s easy for important jobs to get overlooked and forgotten.
Changing the locks on your new home is a basic security measure. Do you know who has a key to your property? contractors? sales reps? former owners? Neighbours? The list goes on.
Did you know, many home insurance policies will not pay out if an intruder gains access with a key, or where there aren’t any signs of forced entry.
And it’s not just the insurance you should worry about – you could also be putting yourself and your family at risk if you don’t know for sure who else has a key to your property. Even if you completely trust the former occupants, there’s no way to know how many sets of keys they’ve given to other people or lost over the years and forgotten about.
