Hi and thanks for your question. GIve me just a sec to answer. If you have any questions after reading my answer, please let me know.
You can take a photo as long as it does not interfere with them and does not constitute harassment of them.
I don't know what you mean about risking having your home used for other means by other people.
You can't go, for example, up to the window of their home and take a photo of them inside.
Or do anything that might be considered harassment.
Better practice would be to hire a private investigator, tell him/her the problem, and ask them to help you collect evidence.
Also better to go to a private lawyer and ask for help going to court.
You can probably get a low cost consultation through your local bar association.

Thank you! After speaking with an atty, we should be fine. Problem is the previous owners/renters lost thier home. I purchased it and discovered that they still held my new home as being thier motor vehicle. registered address whihc I was under the impression the motor vehicle depart required address change within a specified period after moving. I initiated a complaint for change them to change and they told me that i am harrassing and stalking them and will complain aginst me. After filing a complaint in court for them using my address, i saw their truck at a place of business and took a few pictures of thier plates on different dates to show they refused to or would not change the tags on the truck for evidence to take to court.
Seems harmless thinking at first, for them to keep using thier old addres but i worry if they chose to pull a insurance accident scam or something, that my new home could possibly be attached if they have insuffiencient or no accident insurance on thier trucks.
I only wanted to know if my rights to protect my home and its interest are my constitutional rights in place, to gather evidence for court if they claim harrassment or something. Through a neighbor, I became aware of their failing to change the address on their driving records. It worries me that they can continue to do this when it is so cheap to change or update theri motor vehcle records. Why would they not change after 33 days
Apologies for the delayed reply. The DA dismissed the charge due to multiple lies and false witnesses the woman tried to build. Sure would love to show that that woman is a clear Sociopath in a court of law but will settle for an order for all of them to stay-away. The legal reason I understand her to offer was "Well, I used to live there". That was the reason (motive still suspect but not a concern any longer).
There are some real twisted, users and abusers in society and they all walk and talk like normal, genuine and responsible citizens.
Well, that chapter is over and there are no further interests of the DA with this matter. Liars wear many faces but Ido trust the legal system to sort it all out. Just hate that I had to spend money to defend against something that was clearly manipulative and deceitful
