If my renters changed the locks on my house, can I have a locksmith come open the door?

Question Details:

The renters were suppose to be gone by the end of the month but now they have changed the locks on my own house. Do I have the right to have a locksmith come out and get into my house since there contact is up and they were suppose to leave. They have already been given the written 20 day notice because they broke the month-to-month contract. I think they have moved most of there stuff out. I want to make sure they haven't stolen my appliances.
