Oracode 660K: Legal Issues

In this increasingly litigious society, you must be aware of legal liability issues that affect you and your rental business; and take steps to mitigate financial exposure.

Things to consider

  • Crimes commited using copied keys may increase your liability.
  • Some government agencies are beginning to require re-keying of locks AFTER EACH rental. For example, Texas Property Code, section 92.156(a) generally states that the landlord must re-key at their expense within 7 days after each tenant turnover. No need to re-key with the Oracode Keyless Lock.
  • Secure Lodging has received legal opinions that if your Home Owner's Association or other controling entity denies your request for a better security system, such as the Oracode 660K Keyless Lock, they may face legal exposure for damages or bodily injury that might occur in your property. If you need approval to place a new lock on your unit, we have prepared a document that you may use or modify as part of your request.
  • The Audit feature of the Oracode 660K Keyless Lockmay provide evidence to support a defense should you be sued or need to prosecute. Recently, there was a theft at a Colorado resort. The Audit showed that an employee had entered when not authorized, and provided strong evidence for prosecution.
  • Property Managers often times will "comp" a unit for free. The Audit feature of the Oracode 660K Keyless Lock will alert you to usage that is not in your best interest.
