I have just returned from holidays and forgot my keys, so I am locked out of my flat in a Council block. The only spare keys I can get hold of is at my mum's in France and she can't come before Thursday. It takes 2 weeks for SoOuthwark Council to duplicate keys.
If I call a locksmith, can they just open the door without having to change the lock? I don't want to have to replace locks as the Council is very tight with the number of keys we are allowed to have for security reasons.
Thanks for your advice
Had to call out a locksmith a few years ago - they will try and use an electronic lock picker thingy at first , if that does not work they will normally drill through the lock :(
