An eviction process for any landlord can be frustrating, lengthy and requires coordination between the three parties: City Marshal, the landlord's representative, and a locksmith who is going to help open the locks. If the tenant refuses to unlock the door, or if the tenant left and did not leave his or her keys, locksmith picks or drills the locks.
After Notice of Eviction from a City Marshal is given, the tenant who defaulted on the rent, needs to re-pay his or her debt or vacate the premises. Unfortunately, the process does not always go smoothly. A locksmith is needed to assist in gaining access to the premises and changing the locks, if necessary.
The choice of locks is not limited to the type of the existing lock models. The new cylinders, deadbolts and door knobs need to be compatible with the current hardware and their overall dimensions need to match. The landlord will decide, if he needs a set of high-security locks to be installed, or if he will go with the more affordable solution. Knowing that high-security locks will stop any intruder from breaking in, the landlord might choose Medeco or Mul-T-Lock. If there are budgetary concerns, since the high-security locks are costly, the landlord might opt out of this expensive solution and go with the alternate way of securing the door to his property by installing low to medium security locks like Marks, Kwikset, Schlage.
