Why do you NEED a locksmith?
More than the minimum
As a property manager you may ask the question, why do I need a locksmith? Perhaps the answer is not immediately clear, and hopefully I can help you make a better business decision.
First off, let’s be honest. As a property manager, your main focus and goal is to find and place tenants in properties and take care of many other day-to-day operations concerning each property.
How much do you really pay attention to the security of the home? Is it normally just, “good enough”? Do you check the deadbolts to make sure that they extend a full 1″?
Do you check that the deadbolt bore hole is not impeding the full extension of the deadbolt? It is very easy to overlook these security risks.
Do you toughen the deadbolt with screws that actually provide any kick resistance? Many deadbolts come with the typical 3/4″ screw, this just isn’t enough to provide any real kick resistance. Longer screws should be put in to replace those smaller screws so that they can reach the studs.
Also bare in mind the cheap 7.00 locks that I see many property managers use, are not secure, there are many ways to defeat these locks very easily.
Value added services
While I am sure you test the smoke alarms in each home, did you know that you are only testing the battery? What this means, is that the smoke alarm could still be faulty. Therefore, the only real way to check if the smoke alarm is working properly is to use a smoke detector tester like SMOKE.
From a legal liability perspective, it is always better to have third party documentation to show what services have or have not been done in a property, it leaves less to be called into question.
