    Tenants & Landlords - Locks

      When used correctly, in the right places, locks can add a great deal of security to your dwelling.

    • Secure all windows, including bathroom and other small windows
    • Install a deadbolt lock to entrance doors.
    • If keys are lost and can clearly identify the location of your home, the key cylinder within the lock should be changed.
    • Locks should also be changed if your apartment was formerly occupied and you are the new tenant.
    • Try not to have too many copies of keys made, and never lend out your master key.
