Our place has a fancy magical lock on the front door that has been sticking lately. We phoned the locksmith who put it in to discover that he apparently can't talk to us because we're not the registered owners of the lock.

Right - when we bought the place, we apparently don't automatically get the title to the locks on our front door. The former owners could phone at anytime and get into our place. If we were locked out in the middle of the night, he couldn't let us in.

Fuck that. Will replace the lock myself with a crowbar if I have to.

Usually when you buy a place, you replace the locks first thing. It's not like malicious former owners would even need to phone anyone to get in, when they could just use a spare key.

It's a registered lock, so we knew how many keys there were and we had all of them.

It's also a question of trust - if you trust the people when they say they gave you all the keys, then they probably did. If you don't trust them, they've probably screwed you in other ways.
