    If I could find a locksmith to cut a spare key for us I'd probably consider giving one to a friend just in case and also have one we can give to visitors when they come so they can come and go as they please.

    DFs parents have a set and my Mum used to have a set when I lived near her. It was good because I used to lock myself out almost weekly!

    My dad has a key to our house and we have a key to their house. We live next door so it is handy if someone forgets their key or something. Never misused.

    I'm guessing you have keys that aren't allowed to be copied? Otherwise I'd be suggesting you use the yellow pages to find a better locksmith.

    No one in DH's family carries keys with them. We all just hide a set outside our house somewhere, that way if people need to have access we can just tell them where the keys are.

    It's a foreign key - the former owner imported the door from Italy. I've finally tracked down some blanks for it so hoping to find a locksmith willing to give it a go.

    Dh & I have keys for our parents' houses.

    I've been meaning to get a spare key cut for my Mum but haven't got around to it. When ever she is babysitting dd1 or we go away I will leave her with my set.

    It definitely comes in handy.

    We have a spare key in a key safe that we use if we lock ourselves out. DH has taken to not carrying a key and just using that instead!

    Thanks for all the replies, it's nice to know we're not the only ones, why some people do it and, as expected, that there have been cases where it was abused!

    Mum & Dad have a key to ours.
    They don't misuse it.
    When we were away, mum came over to use the cross-trainer and bike. Hehe.

    Two friends have a key to our house in case we get locked out or something.

    I don't know why someone would think it's so that those people can have unsupervised access to your house lol. I am sure they have better things to do.

    You only give them to people you trust and it's been very useful on more than one occasion.
