In Canada if there has been several break-ins in the complex then the landlord has the right to change ALL locks, but the tenants must be notified and given a new key. The only other reason would be if the tenant has not paid their rent, then the landlord can change the lock on that particular apartment with the contents still in it until the tenant pays the rent. In the US a landlord cannot use self-help to hold the renter's personal property for rent due, unless it was so stated in the rental agreement. Before a landlord can seize property and lock a delinquent tenant out of the residence they must use due process of law, receive a Writ of Possession and serve the delinquent tenant with the writ. If the tenant does not recover his or her belongings within the specified time limit, the landlord can consider them abandoned and dispose of them in whatever manner chosen. If the landlord wishes to remove the property from the residence before the set time expires he must secure those items in a storage area.
If you are the landlord, and the tenant has moved out and surrendered possession of the apartment, you are free to change the locks.
If the song's girlfriend cheats on him and refuses to move out of the apartment the song must put new locks on the doors when the cheating slag is at work. Because the locks are different, the song must change key.
You call the landlord. If you own the place, you can give the person one month to get out of the apartment after which you can change the locks.
My roommates changed the locks on the house two days before I was to move out.. When I went back to get my stuff, several things were missing. Can they be charged with anything?
The tenants as if the locks are ok then why change them.....
No, a former landlord can't charge the tenants to change the locks on the property. All sorts of situations can happen between landlords and tenants when it comes to changing locks. Whether landlords change the locks or tenant changes them, both need to know what otherone can and cannot do. So all should know evrything before going to buy a property. I have some idea regarding Las Vegas Eviction Services of RocketEviction, which offers quick, efficient Nevada eviction services for apartment complex owners, high-rise condominium owners and other multi-family rentals in Clark County, Nevada.
Not enough information is disclosed about the rental contract or lease agreement, and the circumstances, to render an opinion. Consult with an attorney or speak with someone at landlord/tenant court.
It is legal to change the locks on any home that you own.
If you are living in a property owned by another business or person, no. You have to contact the property owner and have them change the locks (or provide you with the new locks so you can change them). If you are the property owner and there is a person renting you can only change the locks after you've notified the renter about the change in writing. If you have evicted the renter and they refuse to leave/turn in keys or there is no renter then you can change the locks at will.
No your spouse can not change the locks as you both are legally married.

Yes, you can change the locks if you have a formal separation agreement and you have received the house temporarily. If you don't have control of the house, you cannot change the locks.

A landlord could get in trouble with the husband for changing the locks, but that seems unlikely, especially with a letter from the wife asking that they be changed. There is also no reason why the wife cannot change the locks herself.
can a landlord change the locks on a commercial building without notice

Yes And No.
Yes, either one can shane the locks if they have exclusive possession of the property and a separation agreement has been filed. If there isn't a legal precedent, you can't change the locks.
