changing locks

Should you change all locks on entry doors between tenants?

It's a good practice. There's no way of knowing if previous tenants gave you ALL the keys or just what you gave them. Instead of changing the locks, just have the tumblers changed. You may also want to change the code on the garage door opener, if applicable.
The tenant cannot deny you entry to the house if you give them 24 hours notice. You can evict because of this. You can also call to have the local authorities there to allow you entry into the house. Is there suspicious activity going on ? This is another good reason to get the police involved.
