Does a property have to be rekeyed if the owner was the last occupant?
I must say we love it when we’re on the right side of history. We asked by owners all the time “why do I have to pay for a rekey of a property when I was the last occupant.” No owner likes to spend money. Over the years we’ve required this to limit liability from the exposure of the key during the showing process and also to bring the property up to code and verify such by an independent third party expert. We also put properties on our key system to eliminate errors from copying keys and to reduce trips to the office which eventually cost owners more money. We’ve now been vindicated in an even bigger way. Check out this article about whether or not you must rekey your property for the first set of tenants.
