Can I fit a lock to my door?

You’ll need your landlord to agree if you want to fit a lock. Get them to agree in writing so you have proof in case they try and take it off your deposit later. 

If your landlord doesn’t agree to let you have a lock and you do fit one, they can ask you to remove it and charge for any damage. 

If you already had a lock but it is broken or it doesn’t feel secure enough, you can ask your landlord to replace it.

If you have any security worries, you can come and chat to LUU Advice and we can discuss your options.
