Apartment? Why not just get the apartment office to let you in? They keep spares to all the apartments.
Not sure what country OP is from, but here in Aus we don't usually have apartment offices or equivalent that can let us in if we forget our keys. Even when renting there's no requirement for the agent to have a spare set. I just always make sure I have a spare key safely tucked away for such an occasion.
That's really weird. Because if the tenant leaves and doesn't drop off the keys, they're gonna have to break in.....
Yeah I see that. I think it's kinda just an honesty system. Because once your tenancy ends, if you don't return the key the landlord will just change the lock (its tax deductible and can be simple enough to do yourself) so then the ex-tenant is stuck with a now useless key. So there's not much point in not returning the key aside from some inconvenience to the landlord.
