After a renter moves out, sometimes it's a guess to know if they will be gone forever. If you use traditional keys and they have a copy, then they could possibly come back later. To offset this issue, you could install new locks every time a tenant leaves or install smart locks that work with with your home security system. By using keypad locks, you can give each occupant their own code number that can deactivate when the lease ends.
