mail box lock

This topic is available here on The Repair-Place forum
Okay so my daughter just bought a condo, did not get a key for the mail box and no one short of paying a lock smith $100.00 to get the lock open and repalced. The mail carrier did assign her a box but it is up to her to get it open and put the new lock in! how do you get the lock open without a key? is this legal??
I don't know about the legalities surrounding this problem, but I'd call the former owner if they can be found, and I'd check with the condo association. In fact I'd check with them first because they might have contact info fo the former owner if they don't have a key.

Good luck!
