    My IL also have a key to our house. They were not supposed to get a copy of the new key when we had all the locks done because my FIL has no respect for my boundaries. He frequently lets himself in unannounced and comes in to the house. He says he knocks first - once I was standing right next to the front door about to go out. I heard the faintest tap on the door then the key go in and in he walked. After that I 'thought' DH and I had agreed they wouldn't get a new one.

    Yesterday I was upstairs in only my underwear (just had shower) breastfeeding DS2 on the bed when I hear FIL coming up the stairs!!!!! Do apparently he has a key again. I'm not happy and I told FIL (for the millionth time he is not to let himself in if I don't answer there is a f@cking reason - he will ignore me as usual).

    Sorry bit derailed! Just over it
    Bl00dy hell.....what possible reason does he have for needing to waltz in to the house, let alone come upstairs? I think we can call that privledge abused.

    My parents have a key to my house and I have one for theirs. They wouldn't come in if we weren't home without asking first and I let them know when I'm going over to grab something at theirs.

    Years ago, when my sister and I were living as students in the UK, our neighbours had a spare key, just in case we locked ourselves out - the front door was the kind of door that you bang shut and it locks, you don't need a key to lock it. And we used that spare key a lot!

    No one has a key to our apartment. The front desk has a key that no one knows is there but if we tell them security will release it in case of emergency. My ILs have boundary issues so I would never give them one so to keep it fair no one has one. We have keys to the ILs place but never have used them.

    No one has a key to our house but I have a full set of keys for my parents house and so do my 2 sisters. We haven't needed anyone to have a key here but if for some reason we did I would be happy for whoever in my family to have one. They wouldn't come in unannounced and I doubt they would use it unless I asked them to do something.

    My mum has a spare key incase we need help with the kids drop off etc. my brother wanted a key, there was no way in hell I'd give him one. He doesn't need one and I would feel weird if he had one.

    My parents & in-laws both have keys to our place & we have keys to theirs.

    Both my mum & MIL pick up the kids from school/daycare & look after them till we get home some days. We live on a farm and FIL often helps out here so he uses his keys to access the garage to get tools etc to fix stuff

    Luckily have never had an issue with any of them abusing it.

    MIL will sometimes come in when we're away and help out by changing everyones bed sheets & doing the ironing so i can cone home to a freshened up house.
    I love it! So when i can i return the favour when they're away
