So you just moved into your new home and realized that the seller did not leave a mail key. Now what? It’s simple! Just contact your local post office location and request a lock change.
You can find the local post office that services your new home by calling 800-ASK-USPS (800-275-8777). Let them know that you just purchased a home and you need a new mail key. They will direct you to the post office location that can assist you.
Here are the following items needed to pick up your new key:
- Identification (driver’s license, passport, etc.)
- Copy of Final HUD showing that you are now the owner of the property
- $40 fee for lock change (post office hires a locksmith to go out and rekey the lock)
It typically takes 3-4 business days for the locksmith to get out to change the lock.
If you run into any issues or have questions, do not hesitate to give us a call. ELPIS Real Estate Boutique is happy to assist!
