When thinking about insuring your home and all of its valuable contents there are many considerations and insurance policy conditions to take into account; locks are one of the most important.
All insurance companies clearly state on their policies that all entry doors must be fitted with a high quality lock to prevent unwanted access to your property; a 5 Lever Mortice Deadlock is the minimum requirement to meet this specific criteria.
Although most reputable insurance companies are quite fair when dealing with insurance claims they will very quickly pick up on any failure on your part to meet their basic requirements and once they have they are well within their rights to decrease your payment or, in some cases, not pay out at all.
With crime on the rise because of the current financial difficulty many people find themselves in due to the recession the professional installation of a 5 Lever Mortice Deadlock is a relatively small price to pay for peace of mind for both you and your family.
We recommend that you check all of your “Final exit doors” and “Other external doors” to see if they are fitted with a 5 Lever Mortice Deadlock to ensure the safety of your property, valuables and most importantly your family. If you are unsure of the standard of the locks that are fitted to your property a professional locksmith will be able to advise you and in addition give you excellent security advice for your entire building.
