Changing & Replacing Door Locks

Common Reasons For This

JT Cox will be able to help replace your property locks, even if you do not have the keys.  There are many reasons why you need to change a lock and here are some examples:- 
  • Lock to be changed due to an abandonment notice being served by Landlord or Estate Agent to gain posession of the property
  • Keys that have been lost or stollen.
  • Locks that are difficult to operate (either old or worn).
