SUPRA LOCKBOXES. . . Please make sure that you do not put a PGCAR lockbox on a property located outside of Prince George's or Montgomery Counties. When listing a property outside of Prince George's or Montgomery Counties, you have two options with regard to Supra Lockbox use. One, you can bring your Prince George's County Lockbox to the Association office and have it deprogrammed and then have it reprogrammed for the area where the house is located. Two, if you feel you will be selling other houses in that area, you can purchase a lockbox from the Association in the area where the house is located. By putting a PGCAR Lockbox on a house located outside of Prince George's or Montgomery Counties, you are limiting access for your Seller. Thank you for your cooperation.
