I have a tenant that gave copies to her friend to come in and crash in the apartment whenever they wanted, I found out via a neighbor that has my phone number incase of an emergency.  I told my neighbor I had no problem him calling the police if he seen a lot of people coming and in/out because I know if I ask the tenants they are going to say it's not true.  Anyway another tenant moved out and I haven't changed door locks because I have people remodeling the apartment, but once I find a tenant for the apartment I plan changing the locks which cannot be duplicated (medeco) and require a card and only a locksmith can duplicate.  My question/concern, only two people are on the lease and I am only planning giving them two keys only, do I have two give more then two keys, the keys are for the front and rear entry, not their apartment?

Why do you think the police would get involved just because your tenant has friends over? What crime is this exactly?

Lots of people give friends and relatives keys to their homes. Is this a crime?

Does your lease or rental agreement specifically prohibit overnight guests? If not, what exactly has your tenant done wrong?

Your tenants are legally allowed "Quiet enjoyment of the property". You need to learn what this means and quit being a "Busy Body".

Locksmith here, do not copy keys are restricted keys. It's unlawfull to duplicate unless you are on the list of authorized persons to get a copy with that locksmith. Ie, if it's a rental , realestate will have to do it at a cost to you.

I am not a locksmith but have an account with the two largest Locksmiths in Plantation and I am not limited in what I can purchase from them in anyway. It will be difficult for you to get a copy of that key without the authorised person's permission unless you can buy the blanks and have a key cutting machine.

I'm wondering the same thing. Unless you have something in your lease forbidding duplication of keys or restricting overnight guests your tenants aren't doing anything wrong. What business is it of your other tenant who is coming and going from their property? Unless you have proof someone is unlawfully staying there it sounds like you're crossing a line.
