Charlottesville Short Sale Buyers: Change Your Locks!
Have you just purchased a Charlottesville short sale? When purchasing a home, there’s simply no way of knowing if you have received all of the keys to your new home at settlement. After settlement, the first thing you should do is change or re-key the locks. While you’re at it, you should also change the garage door code and alarm code. The people who could have access to your new home are truly limitless. You don’t want the seller’s household help, contractors, neighbors, friends, kids at college or renters walking around with keys and codes to get into your new home.
Whether purchasing a Charlottesville short sale, foreclosure, new construction home or resale home, it’s a good policy to immediately change or re-key the locks and update the garage door and alarm codes as needed. It’s a small price to pay for your personal safety and peace of mind in your new home.
