The weather is cool—clouds positioned beautifully above the roof of your home; fresh green grass beneath you come together to create an almost perfect image.
It is indeed a work of art—you think to yourself as you enter the place you now call home.
Have you gone through the “new-homeowner checklist”? Done everything to protect your home? You may have missed out one thing—the locking systems.
Who was the previous owner?
When purchasing a new house, keep in mind it was previously owned by someone else.
A number of people at that time have the key to your house! The former owner, the real estate agent and simply anyone associated with that property.
It is a great risk to move into the house when its locks haven’t been replaced. When it comes to the safety of your family, you can’t take any risk!
If your house was broken into and possessions damaged or stolen, you need insurance to cover the costs.
Here’s the thing though; your claim may be void if your insurance company states / proves that you failed to change your locks when you moved into the new house—that you had, in fact, taken no safety precautions to prevent the burglary.
What Locks Need To Be Changed?
Both, the window and door locks, need to be changed. Check it from time to time, in order to know when repairs are needed.
If you have a back entrance, have that checked as well. Finally, let’s not forget the garage door! Some homeowners make all the efforts to secure their home, but miss out on this one essential detail. Your garage may have an entrance to your house. And burglars / intruders are aware of this.
Keeping valuables at home is another reason to pay close attention to the locks of your residence.
The best alternative however is to keep such possessions safely stored away. This is exactly why owning a good quality safe is vital. With the variety available in the market, be sure you find the right one, with the suitable size and features.
