We must have been typing at the same time.

I called the landlord before the pd and left a message. After everyone's comments I realized he could have been lying, he didn't say the landlord's name and he left rather quickly.

We just went through some privacy and illegal issues with our landlord before we moved... I'm pretty sure in every state, they have to give notice if they or anyone hired by them, has to inspect inside or outside for any reason. Here's the thing... She owns the house, but the minute she turns the dwelling over to you and accepts your money, she has to abide by the law just like you do, and you have your own set of.rights as a paying tenant. If its not specifically stated in the lease and agreed and signed on by both parties, her little drive-bys and consequent notices are most definitely harrassment.

Check your state's specific tenant rights and landlord laws, but I would definitely request an incident report from the responding officer!

Some people come and take pictures of the house I rent, once sometimes twice a month but they always leave a note w/ a phone number. It is the bank that send them out here.

How do you KNOW that this was a guy for the landlord?

How do you know it wasn't someone that has been watching you/knows you were home/wanted pictures?

Who cares if it's her property, it's YOUR home right now. Your private place, your sanctuary. If she feels the need to take pictures, then she needs to warn you, and let you know.

This guy could have just said, "Yes" to the roof thing because you led him into it. How do you know what he would have said if you wouldn't have given him the roof comment to work with?

I would call the police. -shrug- I don't mess around when it comes to the safety of me and my kids.

Just saw your recent posts. Glad you called them (the PD and landlord).

Well, it's been 2 hours since I called the pd and they haven't shown up. I sure hope there's not some weirdo peeping at kids around the neighborhood.

Any inspections must be done with prior notice. Not acceptable.
