Changing locks on apartment

Post by TCAAIVA » Mon Nov 20, 2017 10:54 pm

We have recently "completed" on the purchase of an apartment on Las Terrazas de la Torre. The agent has recommended that we change the locks because there could be other sets of keys floating around.

Does anyone have contact details of a reliable/trustworthy English-speaking Locksmith, close to the resort?

How many keys did you get?

I got 5 which was standard for Phase 1. We haven't changed the locks and have not had any problems.

Well, if you have 5 sets as standard, that explains why the agent recommended we change our locks. We've purchased on phase 1 also but only have 3 sets. No doubt the other 2 sets have found their way to other agents who haven't returned them. How annoying is that?

Whilst we can do an Internet search, if anyone has the contact details of a trustworthy local locksmith we will appreciate it.

Not so sure it's very practical to change the type of locking mechanism. The doors are pretty solid (a good point) and the existing locks, though a bit stiff in some cases, seem to be integral to the door design.

To answer the original question, locksmiths close to Las Terrazas
The last one is the only place that does the keys for the metal gates in the blocks.
