How can we help?
Alongside the lack of security that can come from having unknown people carrying around keys, not changing the locks on your new home when you move house poses a risk of invalidating your home insurance. Unfortunately, a condition of most insurance policies is that you are not covered if there is no forced entry, this means that should someone enter your home with a key or through an open door/window it can invalidate your insurance leaving you unprotected. Think about how many replacement keys you have needed over the years!
What We Do
Before you look at changing the locks, it’s important to check what type of locks are required by your home insurance provider. If you have a lock installed that does not meet the insurance requirements, you may invalidate your home insurance. It’s essential that you always read the terms and conditions of your insurance policy to understand what may invalidate it.
