Why do I need to have my property rekeyed and secured for each new tenant?

Sometimes we’re asked this question by investors and property owners. Wanted to explore it a little bit with you. So, when you have a rental property and you’re placing a tenant in there for the first time, what we do is we want to make sure we have fresh keys for that new tenant. To reduce your risk and your liability of that tenant saying, someone got into my house and I don’t know who it was. They used a key. Cause when a property’s converted to a rental, sometimes neighbors have keys and family members of the owners have keys. Who knows who has keys right? So we wanna make sure that we give ’em a fresh set of keys to reduce your risk of liability and claims about improper entry of their rental.

Now, Keyrenter can enter the property, right? To do inspections and that’s a part of our provision in our lease and we have that authority to do that, but no one else should be going in. So, we wanna make sure they have a fresh set, now when that tenant moves out and we have a new tenants that going to move in, we gotta do it again. Now, here’s something cool. We use a special type of lock that allows us to rekey it after the first time, really quickly, efficiently and very inexpensive, if not free. So, every time we have an additional move in, we’re able to do that very effectively and efficiently. So, we do everything we can to reduce your cost because we understand that cash flow is king for the rental properties. We wanna make sure that we’re reducing our operational costs as much as possible.

Now, if you have any questions, concerns, you wanna see the locks that we use, feel free to reach out to us and we’re happy to answer any questions that you have.
