Do you have good key control?

Whenever you move into a new property, whether you buy a home, rent, or it is a business space, security should be on your mind. You will want to be sure that everything will be safe and secure. One thing you need to do here is think about key control. As a top locksmith Northampton clients can rely on, we want to take a closer look at this.

What is it?

The idea with key control is being able to account for all of the keys that are out there. This can be tricky in a number of cases. For example, you can’t be certain how many of the previous tenants had copies. Then there is the fact that they could have given spares to many other people. If the locks have not been changed in many years, even inhabitants before the last ones could still have copies of the key.

What should you do?

Locksmith NorthamptonIf you are buying the property, whether it is a home or a business space, you should look at changing the locks. This is the very best way to maximise key control. The change will mean that all old keys will no longer grant people access. Instead you can keep track of every copy, even if you need to have extras made.

It is a little different if you are renting the property. Here your best move will be to speak to the landlord. They may replace the locks after each tenancy as standard. If not, you may want to request that they do so.
