Take measures against burglary
If you are regularly away from home, it is important that you have good hinges and locks so that you can lock the house properly and thus prevent burglary. However, there are other things that are important to do, especially when you are away for a longer period of time. In that case it is important that you make sure that it is not obvious that you are gone. Provide a lamp that regularly switches on a timer and close all doors and windows properly.

Then there is a chance that the person who now owns them will gain unauthorized access to your home. To prevent this, it is wise to have a new lock fitted by the locksmith.
