Tip 3: New locks

When you are relocating to a new city, moving into a new house – even if just for a few months – it is always a good idea change the locks and to re-key your home.

The previous tenants or owners who lived in the building before you might still have copies of the keys – and thus have access to your home, putting you and your family in danger.

This will also put your belongings in danger of being stolen and your home being burgled, destroyed and your own life can be put in danger.  That is why it is important to replace your locks.

Tip 2: Duplicated Keys

Keys can be effortlessly duplicated – even those keys that say “Do not duplicate” or “Do not duplicate by order of law”, since this is not really in contradiction of the regulation and individuals cannot be indicted for doing this.

The only key that, according to law, may not be replicated is a key to your mail box, because this is fraudulent.  The result is that you can never be sure of your safety.

It is easy to give a copy of your house keys to a trusted neighbour or a family friend, but if modern life has taught us anything, it is that no one can be trusted.
