Houghton Hamlets is a civil parish in the Central Bedfordshire district of Bedfordshire, England. It is located just south of the town of Dunstable, and includes the village of Houghton Regis, as well as the smaller settlements of Thorn, Sewell and Bidwell. The parish has a population of around 18,000 people.

Houghton Hamlets is primarily a residential area, with a mixture of private and social housing. It is home to a number of schools, including Houghton Regis Primary School, Tithe Farm Primary School, and All Saints Academy.

The area has a rich history, with Houghton Regis mentioned in the Domesday Book as “Houstone” and playing an important role in the local straw-plaiting industry in the past. Today, Houghton Regis is known for its proximity to the Dunstable Downs, a chalk escarpment that offers stunning views of the surrounding area and is a popular destination for walking and outdoor activities.

Mortice locks, which are commonly referred to as 5-lever locks, are the primary locks on many doors )Internals & External doors) and are inserted into a pocket on the side of the door. Insurance companies often require that an appropriate mortice lock be fitted to provide coverage, with the most common standard being BS3621. You can easily check if your lock meets this standard by examining the faceplate for the BS3621 stamp, along with a date and the British Standard Kitemark. 

We can recommend alternative locks that meet the BS3621 standard and our locksmiths carry these locks with them at all times, so we can replace your old locks with ease and efficiency. Our skilled professionals use specialised tools and techniques to ensure a smooth installation process, so you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having a secure and reliable lock without any unnecessary hassle. To replace an Insurance Approved 5 lever Deadlock, simply arrange an appointment at a time that suits your schedule with LU Locksmith services by calling this number: 0800 707 4203.

Insurance companies in the UK typically offer discounts on home insurance premiums to homeowners who have adequate security measures in place to protect their property. The specific requirements may vary between insurance providers, but generally, they look for the following security features:

  1. Quality locks: Insurance companies often require homeowners to have good quality locks on all exterior doors and windows. This may include British Standard locks or those approved by other relevant organizations.
  2. Burglar alarms: Many insurance companies require homeowners to have burglar alarms installed to reduce the risk of break-ins. These alarms should be installed and maintained by a professional security company.
  3. CCTV systems: Some insurance companies may require homeowners to have CCTV systems installed to deter potential intruders and provide evidence in the event of a break-in.
  4. Security lighting: Adequate outdoor lighting is important to deter potential intruders and can be a requirement for some insurance companies.
  5. Safes: Some insurance companies may also require homeowners to have a safe to store valuable items such as jewellery or important documents.

Overall, insurance companies are looking for homeowners to take reasonable precautions to protect their property from theft or damage. By having adequate security measures in place, homeowners may be eligible for discounts on their insurance premiums.
