Benefits of hiring a Key Holder Service

Residential Key Holder Services

As a homeowner, your home is your castle, and it's only natural to want to keep it secure and protected. However, managing a large property can be challenging, especially when you are away from home for extended periods. That's where hiring a Key Holder Service comes in.

What is a Key Holder Service?

A Key Holder Service provides you with a dedicated, authorized on-site person who holds the keys to your premises and ensures the security and safety of your property, even when you're not there. Key Holder Service does not include a Home Watch Inspection but instead holds the keys to your home to provide access to third party vendors. In this article, we'll explore the many benefits of hiring a Key Holder Service for your residential property.

The Benefits of hiring a Key Holder include having a Trusted Key Holder, an Emergency First Reponder and an On-Site Contractor Supervisor.

Trusted Key Holder

Leaving your keys under a doormat or flowerpot is not secure, and it's not worth risking the safety and security of your property. Here's how a Key Holder Service can help:

  • Key Holder Service ensures your keys are kept off-site in a safe.

Emergency First Responder

Emergencies can happen when you least expect them. Whether it's a break-in, a fire, or a natural disaster, you need someone you can trust to respond in a timely and efficient manner. A key holder service can be that trusted partner.

Here are some examples of how a Key Holder Service can help in emergencies:

  • Key Holders work with the alarm company, police and fire departments, or other emergency entities on your behalf.
  • Key Holders will contact you immediately and stay in contact with you until the situation is resolved.
  • Key Holders can handle the aftermath of property storm damage, invasions or fire, dealing with repairs and cleanup

On-Site Contractor Supervisor

One of the most significant benefits of hiring a Key Holder Service is the peace of mind that comes with knowing someone you trust is on-site to meet vendors, contractors, and other service providers, so you don't have to be there. Many of our clients do not want contractors walking around their home unsupervised. Dallas Home Watch can greet the contractors, keep an eye on their progress and send you photos and videos of work in progress. Upon completion, we escort out the contractors and lock up your home before leaving. Here are some examples:

  • Key Holders can meet delivery companies and direct the workers as to where to place the new items in your home. If deliveries need to be unpacked and/or assembled, we are there to supervise the process.
  • Key Holders can meet your daily, bi-weekly, or weekly housekeeping service to let them in, be on site while work is done and then escort them out the door upon completion and lock up your home.
  • Key Holders can meet contractors and supervise the work through completion, so you don't have to be on site during the entire job. (This includes specialty services like chandelier cleaners, window cleaners, painters, marble and stone repairs, wine cellar repairs, elevator maintenance, etc.)

Whether it's routine maintenance, emergency services, or simply ensuring that your property is secure and well-maintained, a key holder service can take care of everything on your behalf.
