If you’re a landlord, there are a variety of reasons you should have a reliable locksmith. Here are three of the biggest reasons you should have one saved in your phone and ready to call if needed.
The first reason is simple. Your tenant might just lock themselves out of the property. If you or a property manager isn’t around to let them back in, then it’s important that you are able to give them access with a certified professional.
Another important reason you might want a locksmith’s assistance is because once you have a tenant move out, you probably won’t want to use the same lock and key for the next occupants. You just never know if they made a key copy or if that key they “lost” actually did go missing. A locksmith can change the locks and make sure the home is ready for the next people moving in.
The third big reason is if a key is lost, stolen, or if a lock is damaged by a tenant, a locksmith will be there to assess and fix the damage, while giving the people living in your property safe access back into their residence.
Owning property that you don’t occupy can have a number of challenges, but by having a locksmith available, it’s one less thing you’ll have to stress about.
