dumb question about locks
I have a stupid question. We are about to rent a house that is up for sale. We will live here until the owner finds someone to buy it. It was a vacation home for him. It's on the market for some time now and since he's never lived in it, he's rented it out in the past too. He said he would make extra keys for us but now I'm feeling weird about how many other people might have keys. Should I expect him to re-key the house? I wouldn't mind paying for the re-keying but would it be "out of line" to ask that the locks be changed, regardless of who pays for it? I have friends who have rented and several of them say changing the locks rarely happens and I should not be concerned about it. I feel like it's the FIRST thing that should happen. Maybe I'm being paranoid?
