As a benefit of maintenance service, you can use “remote deactivate” to release the product key/license immediately. The old Origin will be deactivated and new member can use the product key to obtain a license immediately. Note: This requires Origin to have internet access for checking validity of the license.
Refer to the second tip in this page -> "If you are the administrator of the package" section for detailed steps of remote deactivating a product key.
