Lost Keys

If you lose your keys - in the first instance please contact us: 020 7664 4836 so we can arrange for you to visit the office and borrow another set. Please note, if you cannot find your original set you will be charged for the new set that you are issued. 

If you lose your keys when our office is closed please consider the options below:

  • Can you get in and out of the house until our office re-opens through one of your housemates?
  • Can you borrow your housemates keys to get copies cut for yourself?
  • If you can't get into your flat/house, can you stay with a friend overnight?
