Verifying Ownership - Why it's Important to Us
WHAT PEOPLE SAY...
Verifying Ownership Before Opening Your Property
Verifying ownership is important to ensure an authorized resident or individual is requesting the locksmith work.
Yes, we know it can be troublesome, but we will ask you to provide proof of your legal authority to call us to unlock a car or a residence, as well as make keys. Is the title in your name and is it available? Is the registration in accordance with your driver's license? Your driver's license may not have the home's address listed. Etc…
If you do not have ownership of the property you're requesting us to unlock or make keys
for, we'll ask that someone who does to provide their permission first. They can complete
our Authorization Form and list who the service is for and how they are related to you.
What Can be Provided as Proof of Ownership Before We Let You In?
Homes / Businesses
Provide a driver's license with the address of the property
Provide a piece of mail addressed to you at the property with a photo ID
Show company records (business card or website) that shows you name and position with the company
Provide a copy of the lease
We can look you up on the county property records to verify the name of the owner, then provide an ID when we are onsite matching that name
If you’ve just purchased the home, and don’t have a key, a closing statement will work
Your name will need to be on the car’s registration, proof of insurance, or title with a photo id
What Is Not Valid Proof of Ownership?
We don’t accept “phone authorizations” because it can be anyone on the phone.
We don’t accept email authorizations, because anyone could have sent the email.
We do this for the property owner, to protect the property from someone trying to get into it illegally.
Sometimes, potential customers may complain about having to provide this information before we will let them in and Yes, we may lose the business, but that’s OK. Because that’s a red flag. We won’t risk your property
