Key Holding Services

Charles David Casson are pleased to be able to offer a key holding service in Chelmsford to property owners, both residential and commercial across Chelmsford and surrounding areas. Sometimes it is useful to have a key securely held. In circumstances where you are not available to let a trades person in to the property, a key can be collected from our office and signed in and out rather than you having to leave a key out or take a days annual leave. Some people do not feel comfortable with leaving spare keys with neighbours or on the outside of the property in a key safe and so your key can be secured within our office to give you peace of mind. For as little as £1.44 per week we can hold your keys securely for you.


We also offer our key holding service to landlords who are managing their own property. Why not secure a spare key at our office and in the event a tenant locks themselves out they can collect the key from our office rather than locks having to be changed or you having to interrupt your day to attend the property.

Empty Homes

If you travel out of the country a lot then having a key held at our Chelmsford office could prove useful in the event of an emergency or again for allowing contractors access whilst you are away.

Are you going on holiday and would feel safe in the knowledge you had a set of keys held with a trusted family firm in the local area. Would you like us to manage your property whilst you are away, from daily to weekly visits to put bins out, open/close curtains and stop post piling up behind the door etc.

Probate Property

If you have an empty home which is going through the probate process then we would be happy to hold your keys and check in on the property from time to time as instructed to ensure all is well at the property and report back to you.

Commercial Property

We are also able to manage empty commercial property so please enquire for further details.

Alarm Callouts

Whilst we do not provide alarm call outs ourselves we do work closely with an SIA approved security company who can offer you this service if required.
