Rekeying Apartments

Most of the time, you make 1-2 keys for your tenants.  We understand this.  Even so, during a potential eviction or volatile situation, you may not be able to get these keys back.  If this is the case, you are leaving your new tenants in potential danger, and you…  in a potential lawsuit.  Use your noggin, and get a rekey completed.  We are able to show up same day, and typically, unless extremely unique, can get your apartment rekeyed.  Please ensure you know the current lock and bolt brand, this will help in overall execution.  Upon completion, you can rest assured, your tenants are safe.  Even if they have the older key set, there is NO CHANCE of a potential invsaion.  Sometimes, if an argument is ensuing to replace or give back the old keys, you can simply contact Top Notch Locksmith Philadelphia, and we will take care of it.  Let them keep the old keys, we will get you a new lock, new bolt, and new key set.  Be gone with your old tenants!

Building Keys – Yes… For Multi-Unit Complexes

While this one may make a business complex owner pull in a strong breath, we want to remind the importance of tenant safety.  Getting a new set of building keys to each tenant or multiple tenants within an apartmetn complex, is a lot cheaper than dealing with legal fees from someone who is trespassing on the property.  As a tenured locksmith in Philadelphia, we have worked with single buildings, as well as monstrous complexes with multiple buildings.  Since we have been in the industry for decades, we are able to provide affordable pricing for multiple keys and multiple door changes.  Please ensure, prior to calling you know:

  • Total number of doors (front and back of buildings)
  • Total number of tenants (in each apartment)

This will help us give an adequate quote, and thus.. get your locks updated.  While we do like to assume many ex-tenants are not volatile, simply pull into your deepest and darkest fears, and think of the amount pain and suffering you will go through with a potential destroyed hallway, lobby or even pool.  Yep, sometimes people can get quite heated, and we have seen it!

Front Gate – Getting The Entire Property Secured

Some complexes are quite large.  These complexes may have a front gate, and hopefully a keyless entry system.  Lets start with the first: front gate key.  As noted above, you want to make sure your tenants, staff, property, and assests are protected.  In light of an eviction, things can get a bit heated.  We can get multiple keys make quickly, and at a great affordable price.  If you are local, ask about our specials!  We will be able to get you the new keys, and potentially same day keys, for your tenants.  Now hopefully, and in 2019 should be, you have a keyless entry system for your front gate!  You may not need a locksmith to update!  Simply go into your control panel or contact the company brand, and get these updated stat!  They can’t damage your property if they can’t get through the front gate!
