How many people have a key to your new property?
Are sure you’re the only one who does?
- Did the previous owner return ALL the keys when you moved in?
- Did any of the previous owners ever lose a key or have them stolen in bag containing any ID or letters?
- Did the former owner leave a spare key with a neighbour?
- Has your relationship recently ended and you don't want your former partner to have access to your home?
- Do you or the old owner leave a key hidden in a ‘safe’ place?
- Had keys ever been left for a workman whilst the old owner was away from the property?
- Was the property ever burgled before?
A lot of those questions have answers that will be never be conclusively known -
but if there is is even a slim chance of someone using a key to rob you, isn't
it better to spend a little on giving yourself peace of mind?
It's a sad fact of life that there are people out there who watch closely for people moving into new homes, size up their possessions as the removers work and then burgle the house soon after. Upgrading your security should always be one of the things that you arrange as soon as you move in.
Also, if a key is used during a burglary your
insurer may NOT pay out as there is no evidence of forced entry. Your insurers
expect you to keep your property secure.
Are you still sure you have all the keys?
We can make you secure and give you peace of mind again. Robbery by former tenants or owners is surprisingly common, often on the premise of "just checking for any post" so don't let it happen to you!
