Security advancements are another good reason to replace and update the locks at your property, add durable home protection devices and you sleep sounder at night. 

3. Bought a new house

Move into a new property and it’s not a bad idea to replace the existing locks. Property owners have the habit of cutting numerous spare sets of keys, which they give to a variety of people, so you’ll never know how many people have access to your home.  Move home and get the locks replaced as soon as you can.
