Friday, January 18, 2013 - Rekey All The Locks In The House You Just Bought

Buying a home is an exciting venture, but there can often be security risks attached to the purchase. I'm referring to those risks that are inherited - either from the builder or the previous homeowner. Keys are a perfect example. It's exciting to receive the keys to a new home, but you need to ask yourself whether they're the only keys to the house. Did the previous homeowner loan keys to caregivers, family members, neighbours or cleaning companies that may not have been returned? This is why ... Full Article...
