Ask what they require as proof when you call. They may call the former owner or even run the VIN number to verify ownership before they will touch it.
(I know I would, not that I do not trust people, just making sure I do not end up in jail for grand theft auto)
Or if you are not in a big hurry, get the paperwork done and then call. That way there are not any issues.
As for the locks themselves, you may need a new key or the radio that interrogates the key to enable the locking system might be bad. Hard to say. That system is a bit complex compared to a fully manual lock. You can do a lot more than just unlock the car.
