Can a Tenant Change the Locks in Tennessee?

A Tennessee tenant may be able to change their own lock. However, the state’s laws do not specify any procedure for performing this kind of modification, either with or without a landlord’s permission. As such, it is assumed that a tenant must follow the lock changing procedures outlined in their lease agreement or request permission to perform the task on a one-off basis.
