What To Do When You Come Back From Holiday Only To Realise That You’ve Been Burgled

As we come back from a relaxing summer break, the last thing any of us want is to find out that our home has been burgled! Unfortunately however, it can and does happen. At Lock, Stock & Barrel Locksmiths, we know only too well about customers calling us to say they had a fantastic holiday which was completely overthrown by a break and enter upon their return. So if you find yourself in this unfortunate situation, here are some steps below that you can take:

1. Call the Police

The first thing that you need to do is call the police and make sure that there are officers on the scene as soon as possible. Once they are aware of the situation, they can let you know the best course of action and start to look for evidence. You should avoid touching anything in your home to make sure that the police have the best chance of catching the perpetrator.

2. Survey the Damage

To work out how much damage has been done, it can help to make a list of any missing items. Once you have been allowed back into your home and the police say you are free to touch your belongings again, this will be easier to work out.

3. Secure Your Property

Once your home has been broken into, the next thing you need to do is refresh all of the security measures in your house. The first step to this might be to change all your locks in case the perpetrator managed to find any keys inside and plans on returning. Here at LS&B Locksmiths, we can help you to get new locks as soon as possible so that you can start to move on.

4. Contact Your Insurance Company

If you have insurance, you will need to get in touch with them as soon as possible so that they can begin to process a claim for you. Insurance will ensure you can replace any belongings that have been damaged or stolen.
