Eviction Locksmith Queens
If you are landlord in the borough of Queens, then you sometimes have the unpleasant duty of having to evict a tenants for non payment or for some other reason. Many times evict tenants are angry over getting evicted and leave without returning their keys or make duplicate of the keys hoping to gain access to the building or apartment at another time for purposes that are less than honest. The best way for any landlord to protect new tenants is too have an eviction locksmith that can change the locks on the building or at least any given apartment when a tenant is evicted for whatever reason.
The Security Risk for New Tenants If You Don’t Change Locks
As a landlord you want your new tenants to be safe in the apartment or building they rent from you and having a locking door that no one else has a key too is the quickest way to provide your tenants with a minimum of security. Simply getting a new key made for the existing lock may be a less expensive option, but doesn’t provide a new tenant with the security they have a right to expect. And let’s face it, a dissatisfied tenant that has been evicted and refuses to return the key may well be planning to use that key at some other time, or give it or sell it to someone who wants to gain illegal entry into a building or apartment. While illegal entry may not be on most evicted tenants minds, the risk of even one tenant using a key for illegal purposes is too great a risk to subject your new tenants too.
Hire a Professional Locksmith Service
When looking for an eviction locksmith in the Queens area make sure that you hire a professional licensed locksmith service. Such services build their reputation on making sure that their locks are installed properly and you can rest assured that they will make sure that the new lock offers the security you want for that rental property.
If you own a large rental property or apartment complex it may be possible to work out a deal with the locksmith company to work on a yearly retainer guarantying that you have someone to change locks immediately once the eviction process is done and the old tenant has moved out. If no retainer deal can be struck then choose a locksmith that will provide you with same day service to help prevent the old tenant from coming back into the building or apartment and doing damage even if the apartment or building is not immediately rented.
