Stop and think for a minute, most homes have several keys for front and back doors, maybe a side door, conservatory, garages, outbuilding and sheds. That is a lot of keys to keep a track of especially if any spare or duplicates end up in the wrong hands. According to the Association of British Insurers ( ABI ) if someone gains entry to your house using a key and something is stolen and there are no signs of a forced entry you most likely will not be covered, some insurers also exclude theft by an ex partner (check your insurance) yet surprisingly a recent study by British insurers found roughly less than half of us change our locks when moving to a new house.
Your home you’ve just bought is the biggest investment of your life, it is filled with everything that you own so securing it is important don’t you think? Especially when you think most people over time have a few spare keys flying around. The list of people that could have them is endless, relatives, boyfriends, girlfriends, carers, cleaners and tradesman, the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker ! Give yourself and your family piece of mind and change all your locks when moving to your new house.
