Below is our take on insurance company requirements:-

Minimum home security.

Here is a full definition of the type of locks you should have installed on all exit doors and accessible windows. If any doors and/or windows fail to meet these standards you should really think about having the relevant locks fitted.

Windows, fanlights and rooflights.

All windows, fanlights and rooflights that can be accessed without the use of a ladder, and that can be opened, should be fitted with key-operated window locks.

Final exit door (main entrance door).

Should be fitted with a mortice deadlock of at least five levers or rim deadlock conforming to British Standard BS 3621. There should be a Kite Mark on the lock edge with the BS3621 stamped on it.
