Buffalo Home Safety | Changing Your Locks

The keys to your new home

In all the excitement of purchasing your new Buffalo home, getting the sale approved, your mortgage application, scheduling a home inspection and all the associated excitement of into your new Buffalo area home. The first thing after you leave the closing you need to change the locks. The house you now call home was for sale, that means that the keys to that home were in many hands.

Just think of all the potential people that have had access to the home from the previous owners:

  • The helpful neighbor
  • Inspectors
  • Cleaning people
  • Repairmen
  • Friends and family of the previous owners
  • The Listing Realtor

Since you don’t know who might have keys we strongly encourage you to change the locks immediately! It just makes good sense to change the locks. But many times, in all excitement, it gets put off or worse never happens. So you see, after you get the keys to your Buffalo home, the first first thing you must do before you move in — Change those locks!

    Excellent advice! Colleen. I always strongly advise my new home buyers to change the locks as soon as possible. You just never know who has an extra key.
