Other crimes can also be a lot more terrifying, such as a break-in or home invasion.
Either way, it is times such as this that would require you to replace the locks throughout your home, as this will not only provide you and your home with increased safety precautions but those living with you too.
Aside from crime-related situations, other reasons that would require lock replacement services can include when you are buying a new property. While you may have a good reason to trust the former homeowners, it should still be done in order to ensure that you are the only one that has access.
If you are a landlord, however, then it is always recommended that you change your locks once a new tenant has moved in, as it has become common for former tenants to not return their old house keys.
