After a break-in in your area
Facing a break-in or burglary is undoubtedly traumatizing. Many homes in Easingwold have locks that are perfectly good enough or ‘to British Standards’ or better. This would be the minimum requirement that you have probably told your insurance company that you have.
However, a surprising (and alarming) number of properties have locks that fall very much below these standards. In this situation, it is not only very easy for someone to enter your house – the police term the job a ‘15 second snap’ – but your insurance may also not be valid. This can be an easy, cost effective thing to fix ahead of time.
You may be surprised to know that even the budget range of anti-snap locks that are carried as standard by Dr locks Locksmiths York are only £25 plus vat. If you are indeed on a budget, these will be enough to prevent the physical ‘15 second snap’ that makes it so easy for your home to be broken into.
