Frequently Asked Questions About Burglary Damage Repair
Are tenants liable for burglary damage?
Unfortunately the answer is not simple and straightforward. The best place to look is in your lease. This document can help explain who is responsible when a thief strikes. Considerations for burglary liability include the tenants belongings and damages to the building itself. After reading through your lease, Alamo Key and Locks recommends this straightforward law journal article to help you get more answers.
How to Avoid having your house broken into?
secure sliding doors and windows.
Burglers often try to go in through side doors, patio doors, and windows because most homeowners neglect these security weaknesses. Oftentimes windows and patio doors prevent an intruder from entering only because they are shut. Always remember to lock your sliding doors and windos. Extra protection like window guards and bars and more advanced sliding door locks can help, too.
Don’t show off your valuable possessions
Instead of keeping your fancy cars and other nice possessions visible from the street, keep them out of site. As simple as this tactic may seem, it helps. If robbers don’t suspect you have valuables in your house they are less likely to take the risk of entering. Keep your blinds shuttered at night so that thiefs can’t easily look in. Instead of posting your flat screen TV and other electronics on a wall, put them in armoir that can close, and do this for other devices too like an XBox. The less that is visible from the outside, the less likely burglers are to break in.
Keeping your lights on
When you’re lights are on, burglers might think you’re still home. So rather than try to save on the electric bill at night, turn on the lights. A couple lights on in the house can fool many would-be thiefs, and a motion-sensor light near the garage or back of the house, where windows are, are good deterrants, too.
Keep house clean and tidy
Many thiefs would rather ransack a home that isn’t as well taken care of, because it can seem as though the homeowners neglect the house and may not be home. Yet a house that is well taken care of, clean from the outside, and doesn’t show off, can show that the homeowner cares about his or her house and will have defenses the thief may not want to face.
Don’t leave out a spare key.
Instead give a spare to a neighbor or a couple friends you deeply trust.
Install a camera system to keep thiefs wary of breaking into your home. In fact, in some temporary cases, like when you’re home is being remodeled or it’s new construction, a cheap $10 fake camera can do just as well in a pinch.
What to do after your house gets broken into
