The Frontline Locksmiths’ Deadlock Compliance and Compatibility Check* is the brainchild of Belle, a certified real estate agent; holding a Diploma of Business in Legal Practice and Ben, a Master Locksmith, member of the Master Locksmiths Association of Australasia since 2000 and a licenced locksmith by Victoria Police Licensing & Regulation Division* to assist you in ensuring your property meets compliance.


New minimum standards under the Residential Tenancies Regulations 2021, effective 29 March 2021, will require:

  1. all external entry doors must have at least a functioning single action deadlock; and
  2. all external windows capable of opening have functioning latches to secure against external entry (lock or bolt)
  3. a free set of keys or another security device must be provided to each renter who signed the rental agreement

Apartment doors will have to meet additional compliance under The Building Act 1993, Building Regulations 2006 and Building Code of Australia which requires hardware to be fire rated, all fire doors must be self-closing and self latching otherwise the door may be rendered non compliant and may have to be replaced.

How the Service Works

Frontline Locksmiths Deadlock Compliance and Compatibility Check was created specifically for Victorian Residential Rental Providers (formally known as Landlords or Owners), for $149.00 which includes compliance evaluation, property report, servicing and computer coded cut keys not “duplications”, guarantying a perfectly cut key.

Depending on your property and your existing fittings, you may require one or more deadlocks.

  • Our expert technicians will determine the most economical solution to ensure your property meets compliance which could be a mixture of deadlatches and deadbolts.
  • Application will be determined by numerous factors; structural, fire and building requirements, lock suitability and existing door furniture.

Frontline Locksmiths only supply locksmith grade quality products, fully installed, coded cut keys and backed by our FLP Guarantee* 12 month replacement warranty.

Our mobile locksmiths can make window keys and rekey your existing locks whilst onsite reducing the amount of keys required to secure the property, depending on lock compatibility.
