As a landlord you want to keep your rental property secure. You want your tenants to feel safe within their home and you also want to ensure the security of your property. Check out below for a few ways in which you can easily improve your properties security.

Registered Master Key System

By using a registered (or restricted) master key system you ensure that keys to your property can only be duplicated with authorisation. We recommend Security Edge master keys. Security Edge is a registered design until 2026.

If you currently have a registered key system we urge you to ensure that your key profile is still protected. If it has recently expired or is due to get in touch to discuss upgrading to a protected system.

A registered master key system will keep you feeling secure that there are no unknown copies of keys floating around. This is a great solution for both short and long term lease properties.

Window Locks

As of March 2018, all strata building windows above ground and identified as safety risks for children must have safety locks installed. It is the responsibility of the landlord to ensure that the locks are installed. Locks on the windows of any home however are a great way to enhance the properties security.

Lights

Installing sensor lights at the entrances is a relatively inexpensive way to improve the security of your property. Lighting up the property at night is a deterrent for burglars. It also makes it easier for the dweller to find the right keys and gain access easily. Consider placing lights at both front and rear entrances to the property.
