Just found a note on my door that says the house is vacant or abandoned, and they will change the locks soon, and winterize the plumbing.

I called the number and told them that we are moving back in, in a week.. They said they will update the file to show "occupied"

How long is this good for?

The house will be occupied in about a week, and I don't want any key troubles

We just had this same thing happen. The house was vacant for over a year and then we decided to let a family member stay there because they had no where else to go. Found a note on the house stating they are going to change the locks unless we notify them that someone is there. That was on or about 5/25. I called them and they said unless the house is occupied full-time they will change the locks. We moved the family member in the next day. A couple days ago the BOA rep was at the house poking around, asking a lot of questions. The family member gave little information and told him to leave the property. He was really pushy and intimidating but finally left. It was a little over a week from the time I called them to the day he showed up at the house. ~ BBB
