My ex and I both signed a Clean BreakConsent Order recently which basically dealt with 2 conditions: a lump sum payment to her from me (by end August); the return of a set of my property keys by end of June. She has stated she posted the keys to my work address but they have not arrived, were not by secure post and they have probably been lost if posted at all. Is this a breach of the terms of the agreement and what are the consequences for her? She has stated she will pay for a replacement set but I am afraid my house is not now secure. Is she liable for a change of locks? Im loathed to have my solicitors pursue this as the cost is so disproportionate.
I would very much doubt the keys were sent: who would send something like that in the normal post?? It would cost you more than the cost to change the locks to get solicitors to chase this up though so I would bite the bullet and pay the cost yourself for your own peace of mind....
My exh had a full set of keys to my house, including a set of my car keys, when he was requested to return them he stated they were lost. I knew he was not telling the truth but I did not change the locks, that was 7 years ago & I have had no problems.
Your exw has said she posted yours to your place of work, probably a lie but at least she did not send them to your house.
Its not worth the cost of going to a solicitor, after all she will just blame the postal system and nothing can be proved. Either let her pay for replacements & fit dead locks or go for full replacement of locks. Check your contents insurance, you might be covered for lost keys & replacement locks.
