What does the rekey procedure involve?
Not many people know about rekeying. Rekeying is a complex process where the internal mechanism of a lock is changed completely. The old key will no longer work with it and a new set of keys will have to be made to go with the rekeyed locks. The process is as effective as replacing your old locks, but is far more economical.
When should you re-key locks?
Some situations where you can re-key locks are:
- Moving to a new property: If you have just moved to a new house, you would do well to rekey the locks of the property. The previous tenants may still have the keys to the locks and you wouldn’t want them to enter without your permission.
- You’re renting out to someone new: If you were not on good terms with your previous tenant, you must rekey your locks before you let out your property again. Evicted tenants can be vengeful and you never know if they would want to get back at you by vandalizing your property or disturbing your new tenants.
- After divorce/fall outs: If you have split from your partner, you can re-key locks to prevent his/her access to the house.
- You’ve lost your keys: If you have misplaced your keys, it is advised that you rekey your locks. You don’t know who will find the keys, and use it without your permission.
