I'm moving house on the weekend (renting) and would like to get the locks changed for peace of mind (never know if previous tenants have made extra copies of keys to keep).
Does anyone know how much it costs? Locksmith websites don't seem to mention the prices.

Expensive! You could do it yourself - trip to Bunnings.
I'm not sure on the real estate agent's perspective on this, I guess you'd have to provide copies of all keys to them and prob the owner, and get permission.

It depends on how many locks really. Its always cost me less than $200 for up to 5 doors. Call a few locksmiths and ask for a rough quote. Some are exxy as.

Looks like I'll have to just ring around and get quotes, might give the guy my office uses a call, he might do mates rates.

I have always done it myself. Just had to give real estate a copy. The locks are easy to install and cost around $30-$40 each

I did it with this place through the real estates locksmith/handyman and it cost around $70 I think? for a front and back door, one with a deadlock.
