Reckoned he'd come to fix the electric, that I had been phoned about it. But there is a buzzer system to get into the flats here, why was that not rung? No attempts to knock, just the sound of someone trying (and failing) to get key in lock. He had no id, just a map of the area. Now I'm too scared to go out, has he really got keys for our flat, or was he trying the wrong door?
if he'd come to fix the electric then why the hell would he be trying keys in the door????????
hope it goes ok with police...
I would change the locks, just in case he had got keys (though how would he have got them?)... but then, i am a very paranoid person!
I'd deffo keep a chain on the door while you're at home
No, I feel fine. I went out and looked around, and couldn't see any evidence of him, ie no van etc. Our letting agent has checked, they still have hold of their copy of the key, I still have mine and DP still has his. I think I'll be waiting a long while for the police though - mind you there is a cafe they like to frequent opposite so I might get lucky! I figured I ought to report it, if I didn't and something did happen the insurance might not be valid. Not sure about changing the locks, it is a rented flat, see what police say and will talk to letting agent.
Thanks ML. I'm fine. I've convinced myself he was just trying to get into the wrong flat, right or wrong it makes me feel better! I went out for the afternoon with no problems, so hopefully thats the last we'll hear of it.
