Do you Really Know Who ELSE Has Copies of Your House Keys

When you purchased your new home can you really be sure you got the only copies of the keys?

In Queen Creek and San Tan Valley houses are selling quickly. Unfortunately, if one of the previous owners have never changed their locks or had them rekeyed, you’re setting yourself up for disaster.

You can’t really be certain if a previous owner or renter has kept a copy of your house’s key. They could pick a time when you are not home and let themselves in to steal your belongings. Obviously, an even worse scenario would be if a previous key holder used your key to come back and cause you physical harm.

Keeping Your House Safe

A simple and easy way to keep other key holders out of your house, is to have the locks rekeyed. Lock rekeying is a process of changing the lock combination so that previous keys will not work. Undoubtedly, this method is inexpensive and can be done in a short time frame.

rekeying (verb) the act of changing the key bitting on a lock without having to change the lock itself.

Lock Master Pins

Did You Know?

Besides, previous owners having a copy of your house keys, some housing tract developers have master keyed all locks in the development.

Master keying is the process of combinating house locks so that only one key is needed by sales and building staff. Importantly, anybody that has a copy of the master key, can use it to get into your house. Even if your home is several years old, you really don’t know who has a copy of that master key.
