As a result, insurers often insist that you must have a five-lever mortice lock conforming to BS3621 on all exit doors and key-operated locks on all ground floor and accessible windows to qualify for cover, although often the wording may vary slightly depending on the insurer. The BS3621 indicates that the lock conforms to current British Standards.
Some insurers will offer you offer you a discount of up to 5% off your home contents insurance premiums if you have this kind of lock installed. Remember however, that the locks must have been in use if you want to make a successful claim.
For example, insurers are likely to refuse to pay out if burglars break in through a window that has been left open, regardless of whether you have the correct lock in place.
