Looking for advice or recommendations on changing the locks after a tenant moves out. Ideally, a locksmith would just come out and change the chambers but I’m not sure if that’s a thing. I have a house with 3 doors that I need to get changed and I’m tired of replacing all the knobs and deadbolts. I have used Schlage before and had a traumatic experience and would prefer to just have someone come out and switch. But curious what y’all do or who you recommend if you do call a locksmith and what the prices are like.
I've started going to electronic keypad locks so I can change the access code. It's an initial one time larger expense that should pay for itself down the road. (that's the theory anyway)
Look into smartkey by kwikset, all the big box stores carry them. You can re key them your self its super simple. I use them on all my rentals, there alittle pricey but worth it.
I would second on the Kwikset that takes a locksmith out of the equation.
I second @Shawn York suggestion. I use a Schlage keyless deadbolt and doorknob. I delete the codes for each tenant when they leave and have a master code that I never give out.
