With all the sales happening at Sellmyhome.co.uk, there are going to be quite a few of you upping sticks and moving over the next few months. When you move home, it can all be a whirlwind to say the least. Where should all the boxes go, will you have enough space, have you got time for a quick supermarket shop?
What you might not consider though is who has access and keys to your new home. Our advice is that on day 1, you should get the locks changed. Over time various tradesmen, friends, family, cleaners, dog walkers etc will all have been popping in and out of your home and it’s crucial to ensure your safety comes before any box unpacking. It really should firmly be up there on your ‘to do list’.
At Sellmyhome.co.uk we’re fans of Banham Locks – no one other than the registered key holder can obtain copies of the keys and they can’t be cloned without permission. Our view is that it’s worth paying that bit extra to ensure your home is as safe as possible.
