Changing front door locks

It's a good idea to change the locks on your home when you move in. This is true whether you're buying a house/condo or renting an apartment. (If you are a renter, your landlord should be willing to change the locks for you in order to assure security.) The reason is that it's very easy for people to make copies of keys, and the previous owners/tenants may very well have done so. Even if they turned in a set of keys when they moved out, that doesn't mean that's the only set they have. If you're the tenth person to live in that house, there could be ten other people out there with keys to your front door (and back door, garage door, etc.). All it takes is one unscrupulous person to decide to visit someday when you're not home, and all your hard-earned belongings could end up in some pawn shop. 

This is why, for the sake of home security, it's important to change your door locks whenever you move into a new home. It's also a good idea to change them now and then, if other people have had access to your keys (i.e. pet or house sitters, repairmen, etc.). They could have also made copies of the keys. The more people who have access to your house, the more chances you are taking with being robbed. Think this kind of thing doesn't happen? If you check statistics, you'll find out that most robberies are done by people that knew the homeowner. So be safe, and get those door locks changed.
