PBA Tip of the Day brought to you by Joe Soltys with Assist Locksmith LLC (602) 315-3876.
Should you change your locks when you move into a new home? Joe has the answer!
Absolutely, YES you should change the locks in your new residence. This is one of the most important things to remember when moving into a new residence, yet it is the number one checklist item that people forget. Changing the locks will protect you in the event some keys end up in the wrong hands. Having new locks and keys will ensure you and your family are the only ones that can enter your new home.
Oftentimes, previous residents may still have several copies of your keys even though the contract states that all keys must be surrendered upon final sale of the property or change of tenant. Not only does this cause a safety issue for you as a new resident, it can also be a cause of insurance problems in the future. Most people don’t know that homes are often broken into by people who knew the previous owners. This is why changing your locks is so important. For more information, give Joe a call today!
