Customer Question

I'M NOT SURE IF THIS IS THE RIGHT SECTION BUT HERE GOES.
RIGHT NOW WE HAVE SOME HOUSE PAINTERS DOING SOME
RESTORATION & OF COURSE SOME PAINTING. THEY'VE BEEN
WORKING FOR ABOUT A MONTH. WITHIN THE LAST FEW DAYS
ONE HAS GOT KIND OF A PISSY ATTITUDE & TRIED TO AVOID THE
CAMERA( HIS LOSS). MY QUESTION IS THIS:
AS A PROPERTY OWNER DO I HAVE THE RIGHT TO RECORD THE WORK
AS IT'S BEING DONE EITHER WITH MY STILL OR VIDEO CAMERA?
REMEMBER THESE ARE EMPLOYEES OF A CONTRACTOR DOING THE
WORK FOR ME ON MY PRIVATE PROPERTY DURING THE DAYLIGHT.
I NEED TO KNOW RELATIVELY QUICKLY.

Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.

Yes, you have every right to record the work that is being done on your house because the workers have no "reasonable expectation of privacy" while they are on your property. If they were in an area where they had such an expectation, like a bathroom, then no, you couldn't record them.

.

But on your private property and out in public, feel free to record away..
