Have you ever lost your keys?

I was contacted by a tenant recently who had lost her keys whilst in town. Fortunately her keychain had no way of identifying where she lived!

After I let her in to her own home, changed the lock (just in case) and presented her with a fresh set of keys, I got thinking. What if I hadn’t been able to go round straight away with a spare set of keys? She could’ve had a frustrating wait for a locksmith whilst sat on her own doorstep. And what if she had also lost her car keys? Modern key fobs can be incredibly expensive to replace. I don’t suppose the traffic warden would’ve offered much sympathy either!

I think I’ve come up with a solution that I would like to share with you: a simple keyring I now give to all our tenants with the phrase “If found please contact 01243 624 599”.

Now if a tenant drops their keys there’s a fair chance a Good Samaritan will get in touch and we can return the keys to their rightful owner.

It’s great to think by offering such a simple service we could have the answer to a relatively frequent, expensive and stressful situation.

In fact, I think it’s such a useful service that I would like to extend the offer: if you would like one of our keyrings sent to you, free of charge, please get in touch.
