This may depend on where you live. In NYC for regulated apartments you can change the locks (gee, old occupents, and their associates can have keys). However, copies of keys for the apartment must be supplied when asked for. But entry must be pre-approved and you can request written notice in advance. Emergencies are the only exception for this rule. But unpermitted entry is a no no.

: To anybody out there who knows about this subject:

: Can I change the locks of my front door without my landlady's consent and not give her a copy of the new keys? I got the suspicion that she's been inside the apartment a couple of times.

: Please email to let me know. It's really important for me to know this.
