The Costa del Sol is a very popular place for property buyers looking for a home in the sun, whether for a permanent residence or as a holiday home. Being such a popular tourist destination, it is also ideal for many holiday homeowners to rent out their homes for additional income during the summer months.

Whatever your reason for buying a new home, as soon as you get the keys, the first thing you should consider is changing them!

Home Security

If you have purchased a resale property there are likely to be numerous sets of keys knocking around with neighbours, contractors and the previous owners’ friends. Those people will now have access to your new home, without you even knowing they exist.

Of course, not everyone is going to suddenly start turning up and letting themselves in to your house, but for your own peace of mind and security, one of the first things anyone should do when buying a home is change the locks.

There are some unscrupulous people out there and the old keys could have found their way into the hands of these people so by changing the locks, you have ruled out someone simply letting themselves in.

The other thing to consider is your home insurance. If someone did gain access via a set of keys, then your claim could be at risk if anything was stolen. It would be deemed that you did not take the necessary and adequate steps to protect your home.
