Cant think of any other way my self. could you have got in touch with the previous owner? Threads can always be re-threaded or you could push for new hubs to be fitted all round as a safety and peace of mind issue.If they burn them off they should replace the hubs as they will have fried the grease in the hub itself.
I imagine they will use easy outs to re-move the bolts should be no problem.
