How Eviction Services Work
Eviction Services are usually the last resort for a landlord, which is something you want to be prepared for. Ideally, you’d like to give all your tenants the benefit of the doubt, trusting that they will pay on time. Unfortunately, sometimes people don’t understand that it’s time to go and cause all sorts of problems. Evicted tenants are often angry and vindictive.
It’s always best for the landlord or complex owner to hire an Eviction Locksmith. For example, if the tenant has not yet left the property, and is being either destructive or not paying rent. One our professional technicians can change the locks so that the tenant cannot regain entry to the property. You should only decide to use this in extreme circumstances and call in law enforcement in a worst case scenario.
Choose Your Locks Wisely
When you choose your locks, your cylinders, deadbolts and door knobs need to be compatible with what you currently have and have matching dimensions. The landlord will then decide if he wants to install higher security locks or if he’s going to stick to a cheaper solution. Knowing that high-security locks will stop any intruder from breaking in, the landlord might choose Medeco or Mul-T-Lock in order to secure the apartment.
However, if the high security locks are too costly, the landlord might go for a cheaper solution instead. You’ll want to buy common, medium to low security locks such as Kwikset, Schlage and Marks. You will then call in a locksmith to install the locks while the Marshal waits outside. It’s important for the locksmith to be on time and affordable to boot. So make sure you are hiring a reliable and trustworthy company to take care of things for you. Our locksmith company is always on call through the day and night, so contact us for eviction services today.
