If there's been a safe in my parent's home since they bought it 30 years ago, are they now allowed to have it opened?

Question Details: When my parents bought their home about 30 years ago, there was a safe in the basement. I don't know if there was anything about it in the contract when they bought the house, or even if we'd be able to find the contract since then. They've heard nothing about it from the previous owners in the ensuing years. Are they allowed to have a specialist come and open it?
