No one on the forum can give you permission to do what you already are planning to do, ie cut the lock.
The answers you receive are not intended as legal advice. If you are unable to read the laws, interpret them (perhaps with assistance here) and possibly apply them in your situation, you should contact someone locally to give you legal advice about your specific situation.
I hope it works out for you.
That is fair but I have talked to three professional people and they seem to say the same.
