    Bedroom door handle wont open, hinge is other side of the door, can't unscrew handle, and door frame covers an inch of the door by the handle on my side of the door so haven't been able to get at the latch either. Any ideas what to do?

    Pushing the door handle upwards, would normally stop the door opening from outside from what I understand. This does not seem to be the case. Is the a lock issue or something else?

    Do many locksmith companies offer emergency locksmith work? Is this offered by most locksmith companies or just some? How much more would it cost to hire a locksmith on short notice/for an emergency call as compared to hiring a locksmith regularly?

    Is it better to have all of your house locks based on the same key? Or is it better to have several different keys? I can see on the one hand how having lots of keys can be an issue because the risk of losing one is more but then again, it may be better to have different keys for different locks so if you lose one key, it has less access. Overall, what do you think is the best approach? Thanks.

    A lock from a door in my conservatory that leads out into the garden seems to be malfunctioning. The key is turning but it won’t lock. Why is this happening? How do I fix it? If I hire a locksmith, how long might the work take altogether?
