State Specific Question About: ALABAMA (AL)

I had to reject four entry locks upon move out. Tennant did not turn in keys per written instructions.

How much should I charge? Rekey charge was $10 per lock plus my time to remove, go get the lock rekeyed and reinstall.

Suggestions appreciated!

Um.... you were going to have the locks changed or rekeyed no matter what - weren't you?

After all, no telling how many keys were made

In my lease it states 25bux per lock to restore the master system, what does your lease say about this?

Even thought I always change cylinders between residents, I charge to change them. I get my keys from Ernie at Landlord Locks. It only takes seconds to change the cylinders, which cost about 10 bucks. I keep the old cylinders and locks and record where and when they were removed. I will eventually install these cylinders in a different unit. I wait at least 2 years to reuse them if in the same building, but might re-use them in a different location.
