New keys

Tuesday, December 10, 2019

I received a notice one my door that there would be site wide lock changes starting on Monday. That is, every apartment door, both the outside exit/entrances, AND mailbox keys. My sister said it sounds like someone lost a set of master keys. I had wondered what had happened because last week we suddenly had a security person 24/7 who sat near the front door when he wasn't patrolling the hallways. I had never heard of that before.....

Today they came and changed the "core" of my door lock. Took less than a minute. The insert a special key in the lock, twist and pull the old "core" out, then remove the key, and place it in a new "core", insert it into the hole and turn the key and it's all done. They then handed me two new keys, gave me a new entrance key and said that should be changed within a day or two.

Tenants have to be home so they can hand them the new keys so they are not locked out of their apartments, and for the same reason, every unit needs to have the new entrance key before they change them so no one is locked out of the building.

Interesting situation but grateful the landlord is taking the breach seriously....
