I'm looking for a new place to live. I would likely be living in a shared place where I don't know everyone. While I wouldn't move into a place where I didn't trust everyone, I feel much better having a lock on my door (that can lock from the outside). This is mainly for peace of mind.
What is the best way to ask the question if the bedroom has a lock that can be locked from the outside without insinuating that I don't trust the other tenants or that I'm hiding something?
I've tried asking directly but get responses like "no but everyone here trusts each other". Where I live the market is very in the landlords favor so if they get an impression there's something wrong they would just go with someone else.
