I'm an appraiser, my clients want me to take pictures of all the comparables I use for my report. is this a form of tresspassing or a right to privacy? I usually tell them that digital MLS photos were used and say because of tresspassing laws. what is your thought?
JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?
Customer: Wisconsin. I would love if it was a form of tressapssing than I wouldn't have to infringe on people by taking a picture of the home they reside in. I have had the police called on me before for doing this.
JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?
Customer: It happens every time I do an appraisal, the lenders want me to go and take photos of the sales I use.
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: No, I am trying to convince the lender that digital photos from the realtors should be used, because I feel taking photos of someone's house is a form of tresspassing. They said, if I can show a statue or law that states this I will not have to do it.
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Criminal
Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
