What locks should I have on my doors and windows?

Most insurers expect to see:

  • at least a 5-lever mortice deadlock on wooden external doors
  • or multi-point locks on any UPVC external doors to your home
  • and key operated window locks on ground floor or vulnerable windows (i.e. accessible via a flat roof or drainpipe etc.).

Details of your home security is usually requested when obtaining a quotation.
