A Colchester based client called us with concerns that they were in breach of their insurances terms and conditions regarding the locks on their house. They were right and we had to complete a lock change on the same day. This happens quite often but as we carry a lot of locks on our vans, we can usually do a same day lock change. We also made some changes to window locks whilst we were there as these did not meet their insurance policy requirements either. We are always happy to give free and impartial advice on security issue and offer free security surveys.
Your insurance can be invalidated if you have the wrong locks
They were right to be concerned, your insurance can be invalidated by the wrong locks. This client had six locks that would have breached their policy. It’s imperative that you comply with the terms and conditions of your insurance when it comes to the locks. If you don’t the insurance company can cancel the policy when you try to claim..
