Lost keys and forced entry
We don’t keep copies of keys to any individual properties. If you lose your keys, contact a lock-smith rather than forcing or breaking a door or window. We'll charge you if we have to board up or repair any doors or windows that have been damaged by you.
Theft and break-ins
If your keys were stolen or if your home was broken into as a result of crime, please tell us the crime reference number when you report it to us.
