This should be an absolute priority when moving home. When you don’t know who has a key and how many keys were made, it is always best to have new locks fitted. Often, copies of keys are kept by estate agents, and often with the address attached!
You also don’t know the previous owners, and who may have had access to the property previously. Furthermore, if your property is burglarised, and a key was used to enter, your insurance company won’t pay out.
It’s always best to get the locks changed when moving to a new home.
A snapped key can be difficult to get out. We have a range of tools to give it our best try, but you may need your lock replaced.
A snapped key stuck in a lock can happen if the key has weakened over time, or if you simply added too much force - it could also be the lock has seized and didn’t turn.
If no part of the snapped key is sitting outside the lock, it’s best not to poke and prod as this will most likely push it further into the lock.
If you’ve dropped and lost your keys, we can help with a change of lock. You don’t know who may have the keys now and it’s sometimes a thief's tactic to take keys and come back at a later date.
Each insurance policy will be different but our experts can advise on which lock will be best to comply with your insurance policy.
