A problematic tenant that is holding over until law enforcement ejection is the nightmare of every landlord and property owner. It can be tempting to take matters into your own hands by attempting what are known as “self-help evictions,” but that is generally considered an illegal action to take. Instead of changing your locks to kick problematic tenants out, contact a licensed and bonded locksmith that will quickly change your locks when you’re legally entitled to do so.
There are also times when you may need our locksmith eviction services even when your tenant has peacefully moved. You’ll want to make changes to your property’s security under any of these circumstances.
The previous tenants have not returned your keys. If you allow new tenants to move into a rental unit without securing the keys from the previous tenant, then you could be setting yourself up for future legal programs. Our locksmiths can quickly provide you with new locks or rekey your current cylinders to provide new tenants with more security.
Both you and your tenant have lost keys to the rental unit. It happens. The tenant loses their keys and you can’t find your set either. We can help with a lock out, cut new keys, or replace your locks if you’re concerned that the keys may have been stolen.
Your rental unit has experienced a break-in. Locks can be damaged when there is a robbery or burglary attempt at your property. Replacement locks can be quickly installed to reinforce the security you and your tenant need right away.
Our emergency and locksmith services for evictions will coordinate with law enforcement officials when the time comes to make sure a tenant has followed a court order to leave your property. We will legally install new locks when appropriate or when directed, do so for a competitive price, and this takes one less worry off of your plate.
A problematic tenant or a lost set of keys can be a lasting headache for any landlord. As a licensed and bonded locksmith, we can make sure that once those tenants leave, they won’t have to means to access your property in any way. That way you can have at least some measure of peace as you work to restore your rental property and your business to where you’d like them to be.
